If I told you that everybody in the world shares ONE invisible thing that keeps us ALL alive, would you believe me?
If I told you that THAT THING is inside of us, AND outside of us, at the SAME TIME, would you think I was crazy?
Maybe. Or maybe you would know that I was talking about air.
I think you would know that, because kids are smart. Kids are so smart that they sometimes know things before grown-ups do. Like how to take care of our planet and keep our air clean for all the people, animals, and plants to breathe.
Sometimes grown-ups have not been so smart about keeping the air clean, and we need to work harder at that. Because the air is important for all of us, but especially for you kids. You are growing and learning and getting bigger every day.
And so we need to make sure that there is plenty of clean air for all the kids, all over the world.
We NEED to do that. Because we love you so much.
