Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to do my part to try and help protect the planet from the ravages of climate change. I will vote for candidates that are pro-environment, and rally against those who are not. I will minimize the use of products and chemicals that harm the environment and exacerbate the situation. As time and money allows, I will make my home more environmentally-friendly, and make my yard more wildlife and planet friendly. I will purchase the most energy-efficient vehicles and appliances that I can afford, and always take the environment into consideration when making purchasing and travel plans.

As the Native American proverb states, “We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.” I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

To my children,

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.
