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 Grandchildren,

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.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
