To My Wonderful Grandchildren,

First off, I just want to say that I love you all so very much. My life was not easy and I worked very hard to make sure I set a humble example for you all. I hope you all do the same for your children and grandchildren to come. As of right now, climate change is continuing to cause mistreatment within our environment, social and cultural barriers and political apprehension. However, in order to make change we must lead by example and realize that “We do not inherit this earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” We must show unselfish concern for the welfare of others. With that in mind, I have taken the initiative to do what I can to prevent environmental havoc on our future by having compassion for our home and taking the time to educate others on doing the same. I pray that you do the same for your children and encourage them to do better than we have. Many people will mock you, but standing up for the truth and what we believe in holds true value. Pay no mind to the ignorance of others because in the end, they will understand when it is too late. This earth is our home, so let’s keep it that way.

Love,

Maliah Kenoly

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
