Ioanna,

You are only 8 months old but already you are curious about, excited for, amazed by and in charge of the world around you. Every week, I’m startled by how much you understand. I know it won’t be long before you ask me about the planet – how big it is, where it came from, where it ends, and how it works. I won’t have all the answers — I might not even have a tenth of them. But I promise you, we’ll find out together. And when you ask me about what we did about climate change before you were born, I don’t want to disappoint you — because I knew. We knew. I’m ashamed of how we’re managing climate change now, but how about this? If you push me and I push you, we can both make sure that by the time you’re my age, you’re proud to tell your daughter how we fought back together – and did everything we could (and more!) to make the world better for her.

Love you always,
mama
