My Dear Children,

If you’re reading this, you are lucky. Lucky for the most part, to be healthy and alive on this planet. I just wanted to let you know that this letter is being written in the month of April 2019. Winter came late this year and is taking longer to go away. We also have had 3 Christmas holidays without snow. Last summer while I was working, we had multiple heat waves and it was unbearable to go outside and even inhale the air because it was so humid. You all may wonder what I’m trying to get at here, but…kids…I want to let you all know that at this exact moment the world is in danger. The climate is changing rapidly not just because of us humans but a good percentage of us are the cause of this mess. We human beings are important representations of the rest of the world and many of us pollute and don’t take enough care of the planet. I know I may have told you this a hundred times, but this letter is important and I want you to pass it on to your children and to theirs. There are simple tasks we can do to keep the earth green and beautiful. Please buy less plastic, recycle and don’t throw recyclables into the garbage. Drive at a slower speed to keep fewer levels of Carbon Dioxide in the air, or even invest in an electric car if you can afford it. Pick up garbage that you see laying anywhere. These little things can do so much. Not just doing but speaking and telling people how you feel about the climate is the most important part, because you may never be alone. Just remember, that you represent everyone else around you…I will do better and I want you both to do the same. I want you both to go to college, university and then get yourself your own home and family and most importantly… I want you to live…I love all very much…and if for some reason you don’t receive this letter, I just wanted to say…I’m sorry for letting you down.

Love, Mom.
