Dear Amelia,

My heart is breaking with worry about the world you will live in when you are grown. It seems like we are tipping (have tipped) into such dangerous and challenging times, and so little separates us from big pain and fear. I am doing my best to work with farms so that, in our region, producers can continue to grow food and heat, and that we have clean water. I hope it comes to something. I am sorry if it does not.

My commitment to you is that I will teach you how to grow your own food, so you will not be hungry. I will help you learn how to make things with your hands. I will show you how to invest in your community, so that when things are hard the community will catch you.

I love you always.

More Messages to the Future

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

 

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 son,

Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.

 

Paz e bem

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

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

 

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.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
