More Messages to the Future
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
Dear Future Grandchild,
We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
For a child I am yet to know,
We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.
Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia,
I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
Dear Future Grandchildren,
I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.
