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

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.

 

To my precious children

Please eliminate plastic everything

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.
