Re "Don't dare forget Mom on her day" (Editorials, May 11): This Mother's Day, I think about the legacy I am leaving my children. My kids think I am great; they lavish love and gifts upon me. But I wonder if I have done right by them.

My generation, raised on "free love" and the "American Dream," has sucked up our resources and is leaving a planet that will be uninhabitable for future generations if we don't step up and speak up about the reality of climate change.
