Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline. You are 7.5 months old, and he who shall not be named was elected to be President. The ramifications of this decision are terrifying, and I am writing you to say that because of my love of nature, and duty to you to protect it for your future, I am saving water where possible by purchasing devices that help to limit water, eating a plant based diet as much as possible, and planning on installing solar panels when we move in two years. I promise to make choices for our family not out of convenience, but out of concern for our environment. I am also going to fight hard to protect moneyed interests from selfishly destroying our planet. I plan on camping with you in the woods when you get this note in 2050 sweet boy. I love you.

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
