To my children,

I hope you are doing well and that the future world is in a much better state than it is now. I am writing to you as a college student at the University of Vermont. I’m currently a freshman, and I’ve been here for just over a month now. UVM puts a great focus on climate issues and ensuring a brighter future for ourselves and our future generations. This is something I had not thought a lot about before coming here and now see is a much more significant issue than I previously thought. People need to make serious changes, and soon if we want to see progress in how the world is functioning. I hope for all of our sakes, and your future children, that by the time you are reading this, we have made some progress. I wish you the best of luck, and you see much success in your future.

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
