To my future children,

It’s your mom here. I’d just like to say that I hope I have raised you as little human beings who understand the importance of respecting our beautiful planet. I will take you to visit national parks and take you camping and instill in you an appreciation for nature. I will also encourage you to use water wisely and teach you to enjoy yummy healthy foods that are sustainably grown.

I wish that first each person loves to learn their own selves. Second, I wish that by learning to love ourselves we can learn to love and accept one another. Third, I wish that once we learn to love our own selves and then we learn to love and accept each other that we can learn to love the planet that we are fortunate enough to live on. I will teach you to love yourself, to love others, and to love our earth.

We will recycle and do lots of DIY crafts! I love you my little peoples. <3

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Oliver,

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

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear people of The Future,

Thank you for reading. Do your part to save the globe.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.
