Dear Mark,

Many, many years ago I was an avid smoker; at least 2 packs a day. I was always diligent in NOT throwing the butts on the ground. Walking around my neighborhood I see the ground littered with cigarette butts. Where do they go? Washed down the street drains, eventually ending in the waterways/ocean. They are not biodegradable but are harmful to the Ecosystem. Please, please dispose of the butts or carry a personal ashtray; a zippered pouch that can eventually be emptied into an appropriate receptical.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

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.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

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.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.
