Dear Mother Nature,

I love you. I want to remain a child at heart and enjoy laying in your golden fields. I want to cherish when the ice turns concrete into a billion little crystals. I want to watch the sunset and sunrise with a cup of coffee. I know I’m young. Only 18 but I have lived 18 years in love of everything you offer. You offer sunshine and rain, snow, immense beauty and desertion.

For as long as I can remember you have acted like a friend to me. I could tell you what was in my heart and over time we would watch each other grow and evolve. It seems you are going through a rough time right now. I’m sorry. I know I could’ve done better and cared about you just a little bit more. It saddens me that the world is in this state.

I hope in time. Soon. Everyone will see how amazing you are and be influenced to treat you right. You deserve better. I hope that we all take the extra step to make some changes, no matter how small they are. It will at least mean we see and we care.

I know I haven’t done the most or tried my hardest, but I promised myself long ago I would enjoy the simple things in life. And I promise that even though I might not be able to every day I will try to thank you for being here for me. I will try to take out red meat from my diet again. I promise to use more natural products and be careful in what I use and do and how it might affect you. I don´t want to lose you and I promise to care and love you forever.

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
