Dear Lucie,

This letter is for you, your future and the future of your children I hope to meet one day.

You have been fortunate to have been to many of the wonderful natural places this country and the world has in abundance. I want you and your children to have the same opportunity to experience the amazing landscapes, lakes, rivers, forests, mountains and the plants and animals that thrive there.

I want you and generations to come to be protected from toxic air, water, irresponsibly farmed food and dangerous products. I want you to live in a world that is smart about using its precious resources and resolute in battling the forces that contribute to our changing climate.

To that end, I promise to do what I can to contribute to these efforts. I promise to support local organizations like NYPIRG that have kept fracking out of beautiful upstate New York. I promise to support renewable energy starting with choosing wind power from my local utility and investing in solar panels for our home. I promise to ride my bicycle and much as I can and take mass transit when I can’t. I promise to reduce waste, recycle and compost our food waste at our local community garden. I promise to consume locally produced and organic food. I promise to continue to support to education for underserved communities as everyone should have the opportunity to participate in solving these complex problems.

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

Love mom

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
