Dear my future child,

I have always wanted to go up to the Norwegian Fjords since I was in 6th grade. It’s a very beautiful place filled with exquisite valleys and lush boreal forests. Norway is truly a magical place that hopefully, by the time you are reading this letter I will have gone to.

Right now in 2018 climate change is a hot topic. We are already seeing the effects, poles are melting, the weather is getting more and more unpredictable. The land is getting filled up with trash from landfills and it seems like the whole world is polluted.

However, this is why I am currently working hard to earn my degree in Environmental studies. I hope that by earning this degree, I can help reverse these effects so that you still have magical places like the Norwegian Fjords to dream about.

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

Love, your future mom

Dear Tomorrow,

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
