To my lovely child,

Today is March 3rd 2017. Right now the time is 10:29 pm in Bangkok, Thailand. You already went to sleep in your dad’s arm.

You might ask why we were in Bangkok. After you were born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, your dad had his internship at UNICEF in Mongolia. We knew that Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution was bad, however, your dad learned more striking information from UNICEF, and when you were 6 months old, we moved out from Mongolia.

I’m sorry, my son, that I could not raise you in your home country. We could have stayed there to fight the pollution, but we love you so much and we decided that we could not stay there while the pollution was extremely dangerous to you. I wish I had the power to change the situation in Mongolia and we could move back there. However, I don’t have that power and I am still fighting the situation and sharing information with others about air pollution and climate change.

I am not sure how will be Mongolia in 2030 or 50. I might be still someone who just gets depressed about pollution and can’t do anything except sharing ideas or I might be someone who is eager fighter against it. Either way, I know I will be someone who fights for truth and correct things and who fights for the future and the children endlessly.

Now, I just want to tell you to always help people, always help the community and never be selfish. That makes you human and that saves humanity.

Love you very much always and forever,

Your mom
