Dear June and Colin,

It is 2022. The last couple years have been exceptionally difficult and revealing about the present threat of climate change. I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

You two are what give me the courage to move forward and give everything that I can to fight for your futures. I promise to keep working with others who are fighting for climate justice, to keep engaging with political leaders to act for you, and all children who deserve a better future. Yes, I promise to keep doing what we can as a family to live with an eco conscience and low carbon footprint… but I know that’s just not enough when the issues are systemic and political.

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
