Dear Ameen,

This world is a grand and beautiful place full of wonders. It breaks my heart to think that some of the amazing places on this planet that I’ve been fortunate enough to visit might look very different or even no longer exist when you are an adult. For that I personally apologize. I and many people today are doing some good things to minimize damage to the earth – recycling and reusing materials, etc. – but there are so many conveniences with our cars and flights and packaged goods that it’s tough to really do the right thing all the time. We all need to be better, and you and your beautiful curious eyes are my greatest reminder. I wish for you to see this great planet in all its beauty and I pray to be better in my everyday actions to do my part. I hope that your generation can forgive us and at the same time be the best generation, the ones who really figure it out and serve as a shining example of living as one with our earth. I love you always.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

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.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Earth,

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

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

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.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

dear me in 2030,

I am smelling burning plastic!

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
