To my children and their children,

As I raised you, your Mom and I, made a vow to take you to as many of the natural wonders that this great country has to offer. We visited as many of the national parks as we could reach. We traveled all around and were blessed to experience and grow to love these wild places and the creatures that inhabited them.

Now, the climate changes, these wild place’s plants and animals are stressed and threatened. I wonder if my children, who by our childhood travels grew to love these places, will also be able to take my grandchildren into the wild.

I fear change is just coming over the horizon and not for the good.

Will my Grandchildren be given the opportunity to love these wild places?

All we can do is do our part and consider he ramifications of all of our actions?

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

I am smelling burning plastic!

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
