Dear Parks,

You’re only 15 months old and already I fear for the world you’ll know. I’ve been doing my best over the past few years to lessen my impact on the planet, but I know there’s more that I can do to give you a better future. I promise to talk to more people, to take more initiatives, to FOCUS on how serious this problem is instead of believing people with more power will make changes. Because they haven’t and they aren’t. They have other priorities (the wrong ones, in my opinion) and I need to do more. I love you so much and hope that the world you live in at my age is BETTER than the one I live in now.
