My dear family and friends,

I made a promise to myself today to think of you each time I have someone tell me that climate changes are inevitable and one person can’t make a difference, anyway. I’m going to ask them to do one thing about climate change that would make their dearest ones proud of them.

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

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 Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

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.
