Dear Melodee Rose,

Hi Sweetie,

You mean everything to me and I am so blessed, lucky, thankful, and grateful that you are here. I am so sorry that in 2050 that your future at Age 37 will be so much different than my future was. In 2050, I will be 72 years of age and we are facing a climate crisis emergency. I never want to scare you but I also want you to know the facts right here in November 2019. You did not cause this Climate Change Emergency nor Crisis. I will always defend you, share the real, true, valid facts about Climate Change and the Climate Crisis that we are facing. I will always expose you to nature, the waves of Lake Superior, the shores and beaches of the North Shore, and please know you are everything to me in this beautiful but damaging world.

As your MOM, I feel it is my duty right now to share these facts with you. However, I never want to scare you because you are a brilliant, beautiful, active, magical, smart, sassy, and stubborn 6 Year Old. And you, like all the other children and students that I work with on a daily basis, deserve a planet that is healing from the Climate Change Emergency. A planet that is thriving with solar, wind, and water powers. And maybe, someday, soon, fossil fuels and all the plastic and damage of the earth, will be reversed.

Humanity created this massive problem and its up to us as adults and as your beautiful MOM, to solve it. I will do everything in my power to defend you and keep you safe. And the hands of the universe gave me to you. And I do believe that in 2050 and in the years following that, that we can have a planet without the need for fossil fuels and a new, creative economy. And I will continue to fight back against policies that damage Mother Goddess Earth such as hunting, poaching, and fracking. I will continue to be an activist on globalcitizen.org and many other environmental web sites. I will raise you to be an feminist and environmental activist because it is my duty to do so.

You, Melodee Rose and your cousin, deserve a planet that is thriving, sparkling blue and green, and a future of wind, water, and solar energies that bring people together and not apart. Us adults have a lot to do to create a better future for you and the next 7 Generations ahead. I will do my best to keep fighting back because you are my everything….as the song by R.E.M. states…..This is my letter to you, my sweet-heart and magical princess forever……I love you with all my heart to the moon and back…..

LOVE MOM:)

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear Resident of 14 Back Road in Dover, NH

Twenty-nine years from now I hope you are looking at the property and seeing the mature results of this effort. These plants, shrubs and trees will all help to pull CO2 from the air.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
