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

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!

Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.
