Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

To my future children,

Today I stand on the precipice of the rest of my life. Through my life I’ve struggled, and today I face perhaps the greatest challenge my generation will come to know. The world is changing. I fondly remember my childhood in California running around the Redwoods and playing at Glass Beach. Now however, deforestation claims hundreds of acres every day and companies want to drill for oil on our beautiful coast.

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative. Yet, the splendid wonder of the world is deteriorating faster than it can be repaired. I will take action for you, and for your children. The climate is in drastic disarray and it is up to each and every one of us to reverse this horror. You deserve a world where you are not poisoned by toxic air, where the ocean is not primarily acidic, and where bio-intensive agriculture is a normality.

By the time you are born, I hope we will have reversed climate change indefinitely. That you may open your eyes and see only the splendor of nature. The problems imposed on my generation by the prior shall not be inflicted upon your generation.  We can and will do everything in our power to help you. A natural and sustainable world will be the only world that you know. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
