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

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.
