Dear Kaydence,

Hi Kay Kay,

My beautiful niece. I know you will receive when you are 34 years old, but as of right now it’s 2019 and you’re just a sweet three-year-old with your whole life ahead of you. And what a silly, sassy little thing you are!

So..things aren’t going exactly great with the world at the moment. It seems that every day we are delivered more and more bad news. Violence, dishonesty, hatred, it all seems to be running rampant in society. But even bigger than that, is the issues with our planet. Humans have done a poor job of respecting it for too long, and now we’re in trouble. Global warming is causing the ice sheets to melt. Our home in Florida is predicted to be underwater in only a short period of time. Oceans are acidifying, and coral reefs are dying. Will you even get a chance to go on a snorkeling trip and see their beauty? Hurricanes and all other natural disasters are becoming more and more powerful and destructive. I can’t bear the thought of you having to face such extreme weather conditions. Species are going extinct, our air is polluted, and the health of our planet is but an insignificant thought to those big, money-grabbing corporations. Baby girl, I’m sorry that this is the world you were born into. My only hope is that it’s not the world you grow up in.

I want you to grow up in a place where nature is respected, where a variety of animals and plants flourish in a healthy environment. I want you to breathe clean air, swim in clean oceans, explore an unpolluted Earth.And I’m doing everything in my power to make sure you get those chances.

I’m studying environmental sciences right now in college so that I can join the fight in making the Earth healthy again. I recycle, I save water, and I minimize my carbon footprint as much as I can. One day I hope to join the EPA so I may have a voice on the political side of things as well. Hopefully I can push for some action in that way. I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

With love,
Aunt Katie
