If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

To my children,

I want a future that has no fighting. Fighting for fresh air and fresh water. I want a future for all of you with no violence. The violent destroying of our land, water and air. A future with no lies. I want you to be stewards of the earth and each other. I want a place where you are not torn apart. Torn by the constant need of money over everything else.

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your desisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

Remember it is your home don’t be afraid to fight for it, stand up for it, and take care of it and each other.

I love you,
Mom

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.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

My grandchildren,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
