Dear Mom,

Right now, the earth is going to hell in a handbasket. Our planet is begging us to make a change because time is running out. I have always known in the back of my mind that there is climate issue was an impending doom on our future. However, I never realized how pivotal my role is changing the climate issue is. I, as an individual, can contribute to helping my children, and your grandchildren have a healthier planet. By taking steps to be more eco-friendly every day I am making a change.

I have been really trying to turn lights and appliances off whenever I am not directly using them. I know there are many actions I can do personally to contribute but I also want to focus my attention on educating those on the climate issue and how it affects every inhabitant on earth. I want to use my voice and education to join forces with others to make change. I have learned a lot over the semester about how much of an impact we have made on our climate. The evidence is overwhelming and evident. However, I am hopeful. I am hopeful for change and hopeful for a brighter future. I am hopeful for a unified force in tackling this issue head on and being the generation that really makes a change.

I know you drove yourself crazy trying to figure out the cause of your cancer. We know it wasn’t genetic and it is scary to think that it had something to do with our environment and community, but it is possible. So many people in our town have been diagnosed with cancer in the past five years, too many actually. I want to make a change to make sure that is not a trend in the future.

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.


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 Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.


Dear future Michelle,

As consumers, it is our duty to protest and force companies to be greener and avoid environmental damage, whether they are from the food industry or from any other production industry. It’s about time we start thinking greener.


Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?


My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience


Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.



How can I help you save the world and our country?


Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.


Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.


Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.


Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
