Dear Lincoln,

I hope that the world that I have left to you is a healthy and happy world.

I hope that you have learned to cherish, love and respect nature like we have tried to instill in to you since your birth.

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet. There were role backs on air quality and water quality standards to the point where we had to be constantly looking at the air quality index to figure how long we could play outside.

There were climate skeptics and outright rejectors of the science.

My hope is that the work that I have done (writing letters to the editor, tabling and presenting at small events and educating and hearing others concerns) has made a difference and made it so that you could live a life where your children can feel safe to play outside.

Love your dad,
Bryan Schroeder

Dear Asher,

All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Martje,

I promise to do my best and raise my voice to ensure a better future for you and our future kids!

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
