Dear Alanna and Valeria,

Your mom has tried. Those nights she’s left you to go to meetings on climate change action and wasn’t there to put you to bed, your mom was trying… I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future. I am sorry I brought you into this, please forgive me. But please now that I love you and I am trying!

-Michelle

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

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.

 

I pledge to take the bus.
