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

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

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 future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.
