To My Future Children,

I write to you in a time of ecological destruction, with imminent social and environment issues going largely unnoticed, particularly by our current presidency under Trump. I write to you in hopes that your life with be less surrounded by the influence of corporate greed and more so by love and understanding of the natural world around you. Hopefully the world you live in can see global climate change as an issue of the past, one that worked to awaken the masses to our dying mother earth.

I have many fears about the world you may be born into as well. I am so incredibly afraid you will have to live in a world lacking in biodiversity. I hope you’re able to learn through picture books filled with currently endangered animals such as polar bears, big cats, and gorillas, and fall in love with these mysterious animals as much as I did. I hope you get to live in a world where breathtaking corral reefs now thrive, and the ocean species with them, such as butterfly fish and sea turtles. I long for you to live in a world where these natural ecosystems can inspire and teach you, as they did for me. I hope you live in a world in which these eco-systems can exist, safe from the human anti-midas touch.

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction. I pray you live in a world where environmental health is an inalienable right for all, no matter the political party. Overall, I hope you live in a world of understanding and respect for others and the earth.

Mom
