To my future children,

I am currently 20 years old, and if there is one thing I could tell you to prepare you for the future it would be this: do not let other opinions change who you are or stop you from being successful at whatever it is that you want to do. Donald Trump was elected into the presidency at the beginning of this year, and policies will soon be rapidly changing forcing our country to adjust. Through all this change, we must remember that we still live in a democracy, our words do matter, and it is so important to stand up and support what you believe in. At this point in my life I am an environmental science student and I am hoping to aid in the process of developing a more sustainable future. To show my support for the climate change movement by marching in the Peoples Climate March in Chicago on April 29th. That day was especially significant because it marked Trump’s 100th day in office and supporters swarmed the streets to fight for justice for climate change. Not only that, but it was the first time that I truly felt empowered and united as a group and that there really is hope for change. By writing this letter, I hope to encourage you to just get involved whatever it may be, it is important for your voice to be heard. I promise to fight for a sustainable, equal future, and I hope you will follow my lead.

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 Grandchildren,

So here we are.
