Dear Reinaldo, Fiona, and Declan,
I love you!
I love you!
But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.
Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
Olá minha querida filha Julia,
Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
I promise to use a water bottle.
Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.
To my darling ones,
And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
I won’t leave my lights on.
