Dear Mom,

Looking at the world that we live in, and how things are in this world makes me feel a number of emotions. I have so many fond memories from my childhood that involve playing outside, anything from sledding out on the hill near our house to spending time enjoying the summer time at the beach. I am so grateful that we have gotten the chance to see each beautiful season take place and are able to enjoy the world around us. It makes every holiday and every vacation we share as a family so special and exciting. I’ll never forget walking with you to the beach in the morning, closing our eyes and stopping to listen to the sound of the waves rolling over and over again. It was so peaceful, and in that moment, I felt a deep connection to the world around us.

When I look back at this fond memory and see where the planet is going, I get scared. Scared for the future, scared for the state of our world. The temperatures are changing, and I worry what this could mean for my future children. Will they have fond memories of sledding down a snow covered hill? Will they get the chance to see each season being its own separate entity? Are they going to have a moment of pure peace in nature, like I did with you at the beach all those years ago? I’m not sure. I worry that climate change will keep getting worse and worse, greatly impacting the children of tomorrow; my future children and their future children.

For your future and for mine, I truly hope we won’t be able to feel more of the major effects of climate change. I hope that more people step up, and some changes are made. Hopefully something will happen soon that will cause people to wake up, including the people in our government, and realize that climate change is real, and something needs to be done about it. Whether its people making calls to our representatives to get more legislation in place to stop emissions, or its people making individual changes to reduce our footprint; something needs to happen. I promise to not take our earth for granted, and to appreciate all of the things that the earth has brought us. Thank you mom, for showing me what a beautiful place the earth is, through my memories of outdoor activities from my childhood and the walks that we take, and the fact that you live life to the fullest.

Love, Sarah
