Dear Ruth, Fiona, Hayden, Carson, Paige, Ayden, Jack, Myles, & Caroline,

Of all the acts we can do to slow down climate change and preserve the planet, so far the residents of the United States are failing miserably at the easiest and most basic act: eliminating litter. Of all the countries I have visited, my own country is most disgraced by the amount of litter across this nation. It demonstrates disregard and thoughtlessness for one’s own behavior and impact on the planet. We must improve our endeavor to raise consciousness about this very basic element for saving the earth. Awareness at that level is where it has to begin with our youngest citizens. Please pledge to be role models in eliminating litter.

Love,
Aunt Elaine

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
