Dear Tomorrow,

I believe an apology is in order. I am sorry for letting my own interests skew my actions, for knowing better and acting against that knowledge. I am sorry you do not get the same opportunities of preservation as we did. Most of all I am sorry for not having faith in us and you, even for a brief moment.

Though we in the present time are lost we are still learning. We are slowly realizing the destruction we left you, the depleted lands, the disrespect we ignorantly held towards you and our home we share. I hope you can not only forgive our distracted greedy qualities, but I hope you learn as well. We have already made these mistakes for you to rise from, so please rise.

Rise above the greed. Rise above consumerism. Rise above waste, ignorance and our excuses.

There is still time for hope and faith and that time is both now and then. I believe in our ingenuity, creativity and compassion. I believe that as you may rise we can too here and now.

We are on the brink of revelation. A revelation based on knowledge, compassion and regret. I promise to consistently help pursue this revelation in my journey through this life. I promise to no longer turn a blind eye or make excuses. I promise to not keep quiet in this fight for life. When I say life I mean all life for we are not the only beings who deserve to continue to be. Life on earth and its connectivity is a beautiful thing. I hope you continue to agree.

With great faith and love,
Your past

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.
