Dearest Wicomico,

Our world and our lifestyle is in danger. The way we carelessly crank the AC and eat meat (canned tuna for you) can not last. We see the BGE bill and bigger storms and we realize that maybe we don’t want this lifestyle. Not if it means climate change and hurting our planet. So we have decided to change our lifestyle. It isn’t worth it if it means putting others in more vulnerable situations at risk. We are incredibly privileged to be able to make that choice to become more environmentally friendly. You will decide to kill less birds and I will make the conscious effort to reduce my consumption. We will start conversations with our parents and family to rethink our energy and dietary needs. We have learned that in order to enjoy more, we need to be less. Less wasteful and less pessimistic and less ignorant. I will vote for important solutions like clean energy and green spaces while you take another nap. We see that we needed to change our habits in order to protect the nature that we love. We will do it for each other and I thank you for being the most inspiring kitten boy ever.

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.

 

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 pledge to take the bus.

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Tomorrow,
