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:)

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
