To my future grandchildren,

One of my favorite things about living in San Francisco is the people there. We have a diverse community that promotes tolerance and acceptance. I could not see myself calling anywhere else my home.

California has a history of drought, and global warming plays a heavy part in that. If global warming were to continue, business as usual, our home would not be the same as I remember, and you would not be able to experience it.

I hope that we could manage our impact on climate change, so the beauty of our city can be maintained for centuries.

I promise to take the steps in my life to lower my ecological footprint, and lead through example. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my favorite hidden spots.

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
