To my unborn child,

I grew up in a ranch surrounded by miles and miles of agriculture. My backyard playground was a muddy river which was a result from the agriculture drainage, along with endless trees. I remember on warm sunny days my cousins and I would have messy water balloon fights or just simply wet each other with the water hose. Once we were tired we would have picnics under a huge green tree and count the rows of crops we were surrounded by. This is a memory I deeply cherish, not only because of the company I had, but because I got to experience the beauty of nature first hand, something I wish everyone could have a chance to experience.

Climate change is real and people are currently fogged with confusion about the topic, which makes it scary. We have the means to stop this from occurring, yet we are taking no action. Climate change is no longer a problem we will once face, it is a problem that is occurring right here right now. With all the current burning of fossil fuels, natural gas, and oil, humans are only fueling climate change as opposed to being the solution for this issue.

It is embarrassing how ignorant some humans are when it comes to such a serious topic, so I hope in the future your generation does a better job as humans to unite and protect our planet Earth at all costs. I hope you are part of the solution and inspire your fellow citizens to maintain an environment that is filled with tons of greenery and clean air.

I promise to adjust what I am consuming and how much I am consuming. Aside from adjusting my food intake, I will adjust the way I utilize electricity everyday, and consider talking a walk and/or public transportation to get to my destination. I promise to be part of the solution and look up ways I can help whether its by volunteering, educating others, or even voting for the right candidate that will protect our planet.

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.
