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.
