Dear Alyssa and Johnny,

Hello little cousins. I hope everything is okay. As of now it does not look like everything will be okay. We are consuming fossil fuels at alarming rates, the streets sometimes look more like dumpsters than a place to walk, and people seem to care more about the green in their pockets rather than the green on the trees. Little do they know the green in their pockets will mean nothing once the green on the earth is no more. I am putting my whole future career into trying to help keep the earth healthy for future generations like you guys. I hope throughout the years I will be able to help you guys learn to appreciate the natural world around you and I know your mom will help teach you as well. There is so much beauty in national parks and green spaces that I got to experience growing up and now I hope those will all still be there for you guys when you are a little bit older. I hope my personal goals of diving in the great barrier reef and studying in the tropical rain forests will have come true, and I hope you guys will still be able to make similar goals.

Love, Cassie

More Messages to the Future

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

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 Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.
