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.

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.
