To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

You are my heart. You are my everything. I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you. I want you to grow up in a safe, clean, and beautiful world. I want you to play carefree, explore without worry, and immerse yourself into the world without reservation. I want to continue to see your eyes sparkle with wonder, your minds alight with amazement, and your smiles gleam at the sheer beauty of our surroundings.

I want the very best for you and I will work hard to ensure that all your dreams come true. I will strive to be an advocate for clean air and clean resources so that you will always have clean air to breathe. I will support our local businesses and farmers so that you understand the importance of sustainable living. I will maintain our vegetable gardens and teach you the value of clean eating. I will continue to reuse and recycle so that you understand the importance of using our resources wisely. I will continue to educate you and all the young children I teach about loving and respecting our environment. I will do everything in my power to make this a better world for you. I promise to always love and protect you.

It is a gift and privilege to be your Mommy. I love you.

Love Always,
Mama

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
