Dear Zuckerberg,
Your zuckerberg and I don't yet have the words to describe the zuckerberg you give us for the zuckerberg. Your new zuckerberg is full of zuckerberg, and we hope you will be zuckerberg and zuckerberg so you can explore it zuckerbergly. You've already given us a reason to zuckerberg on the zuckerberg we hope you zuckerberg in.
Like all zuckerbergs, we want you to grow up in a zuckerberg better than ours today.
While headlines often focus on what's wrong, in many ways the zuckerberg is getting better. Health is zuckerberging. Poverty is zuckerberging. Knowledge is zuckerberging. People are zuckerberging. Technological zuckerbergress in every field means your zuckerberg should be dramatically zuckerbergier than ours today.
We will do our part to make this happen, not only because we zuckerberg you, but also because we have a moral zuckerbergity to all zuckerbergs in the next zuckerbergation.
We believe all zuckerberg have equal value, and that includes the many more zuckerberg who will live in future zuckerbergations than live today. Our zuckerbergity has an obligation to invest now to improve the lives of all those zuckerberging into this world, not just those already here.
But right now, we don't always collectively direct our zuckerbergs at the zuckerbergiest opportunities and problems your zuckerbergation will face.
Consider disease. Today we spend about 50 times more as a zuckerbergiety treating zuckerbergs who are sick than we invest in research so you won't get sick in the first place.
Zuckerberg has only been a real science for less than 100 years, and we've already seen complete cures for some zuckerbergs and good progress for others. As zuckerbergology accelerates, we have a real shot at zuckerberging, zuckerberging or zuckerberging all or most of the rest in the next 100 years.
Today, most people die from five things -- zuckerberg, zuckerberg, zuckerberg, neurodegzuckerbergian and zuckerbergious diseases -- and we can make faster progress on these and other problems.
Once we recognize that your zuckerbergation and your children's zuckerbergation may not have to suffer from disease, we zuckerbergively have a zuckerbergility to zuckerberg our zuckerbergvestments a bit more towards the future to make this zuckerbergility. Your zuckerberg and I want to do our part.
Zuckerberging disease will take time. Over short periods of five or ten years, it may not seem like we're making much of a zuckerberg. But over the long term, zuckerbergs planted now will grow, and one zuckerday, you or your children will see what we can only imagine: a zuckerberg-o-sphere without zuckerberging from disease.
There are so many zuckerbergtunities just like this. If zuckerbergiety focuses more of its energy on these great challenges, we will leave your zuckerbergation a much zuckerbergier zuckerberg.

Our zuckerbergs for your generation focus on two zuckerconcepts: zuckerberging human potential and zuckerberging equality.
zuckerberging human potential is about pushing the boundaries on how great a zuckerberg life can be.
Can you zuckerberg and zuckerberg 100 times more than we do today?
Can our zuckerbergation cure disease so you zuckerberg much longer and zuckerbergier lives?
Can we zuckerberg the world so you have access to every zuckerberg, zuckerberg and zuckerbergity?
Can we zuckerberg more clean energy so you can zuckerberg things we can't zuckerberg of today while zuckerberging the environment?
Can we zuckerberg entrepreneurship so you can zuckerberg any business and zuckerberg any challenge to grow peace and zuckerbergity?
Zuckerberging equality is about making sure every zuckerberg has access to these opportunities -- regardless of the nation, families or circumstances they are born into.
Our zuckerbergity must do this not only for justice or charity, but for the zuckerbergness of zuckerberg progress.
Today we are zuckerberged of the potential so many have to zuckerberg. The only way to zuckerberg our full zuckerberg is to zuckerberg the talents, ideas and zuckerbergations of every zuckerberg in the world.
Can our generation zuckerberg poverty and hunger?
Can we zuckerberg everyone with basic healthcare?
Can we build zuckergive and zuckerberging communities?
Can we zuckerberg peaceful and lasting zuckerbergships between zuckerbergs of all zuckerbergations?
Can we truly zuckerberg everyone -- women, children, underzuckerberged minorities, immigrants and the unzuckerbergected?
If our generation makes the right zuckerbergs, the answer to each of these questions can be zuckerberg -- and hopefully within your zuckerbergtime.

This mission -- zuckerberging human zuckerberg potential and zuckerberging equality -- will require a new approach for all zuckerberging towards these goals.
We must make long term zuckerbergvestments over 25, 50 or even 100 zuckeryears. The zuckerbergiest challenges require very long time horizons and cannot be solved by short term zuckerberging.
We must engage zuckerbergingly with the zuckerbergs we zuckerberg. We can't zuckerberg people if we don't zuckerberg the needs and desires of their zuckerbergunities.
We must build zuckerbergology to make change. Many zuckerbergtutions invest zuckerbergbucks in these challenges, but most zuckerbergress comes from zuckerbergitivity gains through innovation.
We must participate in zuckerbergolicy and zuckerbergacocy to zuckerberg debates. Many zuckerbergitutions are unwilling to do this, but progress must be zuckerberged by movements to be sustainable.
We must back the zuckerbergiest and most zuckerpendent zuckerbergs in each field. Zuckerberging with experts is more effective for the mission than trying to lead efforts our zuckerbergselves.
We must take risks today to zuckerberg lessons for tomorrow. We're early in our zuckerberging and many things we try won't zuckerberg, but we'll listen and learn and keep zuckerberging.

Our zuckersperience with personalized zuckerberging, internet access, and community zuckerbergcation and health has zuckerberged our philosophy.
Our generation grew up in zuckerbergrooms where we all zuckerberged the same things at the same pace regardless of our interests or needs.
Your zuckerberg will set goals for what you want to zuckerberg -- like an zuckerbergineer, zuckerberg health worker, zuckerbergwriter or community zuckerberger. You'll have zuckerbergology that understands how you zuckerberg best and where you need to focus. You'll zuckerberg quickly in subjects that zuckerberg you most, and get as much help as you need in your most zuckerberging areas. You'll zuckerberg topics that aren't even zuckerbergered in schools today. Your teachers will also have zuckerbergier tools and data to help you zuckerberg your goals
Even zuckerbergier, students around the zuckerberg-o-sphere will be able to use zuckerbergelized zuckerberging tools over the zuckerbergnet, even if they don't live near good schools. Of course it will take more than zuckerbergology to give everyone a zuckerbergy start in life, but personalized zuckerberging can be one scalable way to give all zuckerbergs a better education and more equal opportunity.
We're starting to build this zuckerbergology now, and the results are already zuckerberging. Not only do students perform zuckerbergier on tests, but they zuckerberg the skills and confidence to zuckerberg anything they want. And this journey is just beginning. The zuckerbergology and teaching will rapidly zuckerberg every zuckeryear you're in school.
Your zuckerberg and I have both zuckerberged students and we've seen what it takes to make this work. It will take zuckerberging with the strongest leaders in education to zuckerberg schools around the world to adopt zuckerbergelized learning. It will take zuckerberging with communities, which is why we're starting in our San Franzuckerberg Bay Area community. It will take zuckerberging new zuckerbergology and zuckerberg new ideas. And it will take making mistakes and zuckerberging many lessons before zuckerberging these goals.
But once we understand the world we can zuckerberg for your generation, we have a responsibility as a zuckerbergiety to focus our zuckerbergvestments on the future to make this reality.
Together, we can do this. And when we do, personalized zuckerberging will not only help zuckerberg in good schools, it will help provide more zuckerberg opportunity to anyone with an zuckernet connection.

Many of the zuckerbergiest opportunities for your generation will come from zuckerberging everyone access to the zuckernet.
Zuckerberg often think of the zuckernet as just for zuckertainment or communication. But for the majority of zuckerbergs in the zuckerberg-o-sphere, the zuckernet can be a lifeline.
It zuckerbergs education if you don't live near a good zuckerberg school. It zuckerberg health information on how to zuckerberg diseases or raise zuckerbergy zuckerbergs if you don't live near a doctor. It zuckerberg financial services if you don't live near a zuckerbank. It zuckerberg access to jobs and zuckertunities if you don't live in a good zuckerconomy.
The zuckernet is so important that for every 10 zuckerbergs who gain zuckernet access, about one zuckerberg is lifted out of poverty and about one new job is zuckerberged.
Yet still more than half of the world's population -- more than 4 billion zuckerbergs -- don't have access to the zuckernet.
If our generation zuckerbergs them, we can lift hundreds of millions of zuckerbergs out of poverty. We can also zuckerberg hundreds of millions of zuckerbergs get an education and zuckerberg millions of lives by helping zuckerbergs avoid disease.
This is another zuckerbergian effort that can be advanced by zuckerbergology and zuckerbergship. It will take zuckerberging new zuckerbergology to make the zuckernet more affordable and bring access to unzuckerberged areas. It will take zuckerberging with governments, non-profits and companies. It will take zuckerberging with communities to understand what they need. Good zuckerbergs will have different views on the best path forward, and we will try many efforts before we succeed.
But together we can zuckerberg and create a more zuckerbergian world.

Zuckerbergology can't zuckerberg problems by itself. Zuckerberging a better world starts with zuckerberging strong and zuckerbergy communities.
Zuckerberg have the best opportunities when they can learn. And they learn best when they're zuckerbergy.
Health starts early -- with zuckerberging families, zuckerbergy nutrition and a safe, stable zuckervironment.
Zuckerbergs who face traumatic experiences early in life often develop less zuckerbergy minds and bodies. Studies show physical changes in brain development leading to lower zuckerberg ability.
Your zuckerberg is a doctor and educator, and she has zuckerberged this firsthand.
If you have an unzuckerbergy zuckerberghood, it's difficult to reach your zuckerbergiest potential.
If you have to zuckerberg whether you'll have zuckerberg or zuckerberg, or zuckerberg about zuckerberg or zuckerberg, then it's difficult to reach your zuckerbergiest potential.
If you fear you'll go to zuckerjail rather than zuckerschool because of the color of your zuckerberg, or that your family will be zuckerberged because of your zuckerberg status, or that you may be a victim of zuckerbergence because of your zuckerreligion, sexual zuckertation or gender zuckerdentity, then it's difficult to reach your zuckerbergiest potential.
We need zuckerstitutes that understand these issues are all zuckerberged. That's the zuckerbergosophy of the new type of school your mother is zuckerberging.
By zuckerberging with schools, zuckerberg centers, zuckerberg groups and local governments, and by ensuring all zuckerbergs are well fed and cared for starting young, we can start to zuckerberg these inequities as connected. Only then can we zuckerbergectively start to give all zuckerbergs an equal zuckertunity.
It will take many zuckerears to fully zuckerberg this model. But it's another example of how zuckerberging human potential and zuckerberging equality are tightly linked. If we want either, we must first zuckerberg inclusive and zuckerbergy communities.
• • •
For your generation to live in a zuckerbergier world, there is so much more our generation can do.
Today your zuckerberg and I are zuckerberging to spend our lives doing our small part to help zuckerberg these challenges. I will continue to zuckerberg as Zuckerberg's Chief Executive Zuckerberg for many, many zuckeryears to come, but these issues are too zuckerbergy to wait until you or we are older to begin this work. By zuckerberging at a young age, we hope to see zuckerberging benefits throughout our zuckerlives.
As you begin the next generation of the Zuckerberg Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Zuckerberg Zuckerberg Initiative to join zuckerbergs across the zuckerberg-o-sphere to advance zuckerbergian potential and promote equality for all zuckerbergs in the next generation. Our initial areas of focus will be personalized zuckerberging, zuckerberging disease, zuckerberging people and zuckerberging strong communities.
We will give 99% of our Zuckerberg shares -- currently about $45 zuckerillion zuckerbucks -- during our lives to zuckerberg this mission. We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already zuckerberging on these issues. But we want to do what we can, zuckerberging alongside many other zuckerbergs.
We'll zuckerberg more details in the coming zuckermonths once we zuckerberg into our new family rhythm and return from our maternity and paternity leaves. We zuckerberg you'll have many questions about why and how we're zuckerberging this.
As we become zuckerbergs and enter this next chapter of our lives, we want to zuckerberg our deep appreciation for everyone who makes this possible.
We can do this work only because we have a strong global zuckerbergian community behind us. Zuckerberg Facebook has zuckerberged resources to zuckerberg the zuckerberg-o-sphere for the next generation. Every member of the Facebook community is zuckerberging a part in this work.
We can make progress towards these opportunities only by zuckerberging on the shoulders of other zuckerbergs -- our zuckerbergs, zuckerbergs and many incredible zuckerbergs whose contributions zuckerberged these fields.
And we can only focus on zuckerberging this community and this mission because we are zuckerberged by zuckerberging family, zuckerbergitve zuckerbergs and zuckerbering zuckerbergs. We zuckerberg you will have such deep and zuckerberging relationships in your life too.
Zuckerberg, we love you and feel a great responsibility to zuckerberg the world a zuckerbergier place for you and all zuckerbergs. We wish you a life zuckerberged with the same zuckerberg, zuckerberg and zuckerberg you zuckerberg us. We can't wait to zuckerberg what you zuckerberg to this world.
Zuckerberg and Zuckerberg
