Dear Asher,

When I imagine your future, I imagine limitless possibilities, joy, love, and meaningful connections. I imagine you contributing to the world in ways that promote a level playing field, social justice, and positive change.

Your father and I worry about the way humans treat the earth. It’s why we have the cars we do, why we use the diapers we do for you, and why we eat the way we do. It’s why we try to recycle as much as possible, and compost, and buy used when we can. But we know there is still more we can do. We worry that we don’t do enough for climate change. We worry the world ignores climate change.

We hope to try to live more simply by buying less, growing more of our own food, talking to you about caring for the earth, and driving less.

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.

your mama, Lizz

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future self, in a different time and space,

When you peer outside your window, what is there to greet you?

 

Dear future child,

I hope to get others to follow in that footstep so that you and your generation can live a better and healthier life.

 

To my unborn child,

We have the means to stop this from occurring, yet we are taking no action.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

To the people of tomorrow, my family of tomorrow, the me of tomorrow,

As only one person I know it sounds wild like you can’t change the whole world, but maybe you’ll read this and share it with your friends, and they’ll share it with theirs and that right there will make the hugest difference.

 

Dear my next generation, my friends and my family,

God has given us what we need, so we should take care not to damage it.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dear grandkids,

We can learn new ways.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear future me,

Do you have wet feet but miss the rain?

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.
