I love you Earth.
More Messages to the Future
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
My dear granddaughter Christy,
My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
To my children,
I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
I will teach my children about a greener earth.
I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.
All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.
I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.
That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.
