Dear Brendan,

It is clear that since the arrival of human industrialization, the tide has shifted in terms of how the earth itself is treated. The natural world has been viewed as something that solely holds instrumental value, existing so that humans can take from it and do what they please, creating products, technology, and so on in order to receive a profit, never thinking about giving back to the planet for all they have taken away. This problem is also one of human proportions, where it is not just the world itself that is being degraded, but the people who live in third-world countries or those who are sustenance farmers or fishers, and are not fortunate enough to consume without thinking about the consequences. Still, these people bear the largest burden of all even though they consume the very least. By 2050, it is important that you work to spark change and make the world a better place socially, economically, and most importantly, environmentally, with all three factors working together hand-in-hand. There is more to learn each and every day, with hindsight being 20/20, however, if you continue down your current path there will be satisfaction, hope, love, and gratitude at the end of the tunnel.
Be great!

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
