My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

Hey Kiddos!

I hope this note finds you having an amazing day and enjoying whatever Chicago weather has to offer.

As you know, mommy, has bad asthma and it has been getting worse over the years. My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

I love you and can’t wait to enjoy our world with you more and more.

Big hugs,

Alexandra, Al, Mommy

More Messages to the Future

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dearest Finlay,

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 Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

Dear Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
