To My Future Child,

When I tell you that the things you do matter, I mean it. I tell you this because I believe everyone has an obligation in this world to be a steward with the earth. I have raised you and taught you to respect the natural world, and I too hold myself accountable to this expectation.

I am writing to you in a time where the impacts of climate change are becoming worse everyday. Often times I feel trapped as I struggle to understand how our society has reached the state it is in today. All I know is that I must fight for what is left, because I want you to see the beauty the world has to offer.

Not a day goes by that I do not think about what you will be like. I know that there is hope for a better world. We have the technology and the capability to improve our climate crisis. It is complicated and timely, but that does not mean we should give up.

I cannot wait for the day that I can take you hiking through Montana, teach you to ride a bike, and share endless memories with you. I know that you will be my favorite person to adventure with.

Until we meet, I will continue fighting for you and our planet.

Yours truly,

Mom

My Mini & Lou,
