Dear Bryson, Wade, Ada, Liam, Hank, & Lila,

Please take the time to focus on what you envision as important. I do not mean material things or what you term is “successful.” Rather, what makes the difference in terms of making relationships better, the beauty and the splendor of flora and fauna, living in the present, and recognizing that having “things” or “the case of the gimmes” or “wants versus needs” are irrelevant in the scheme of life’s passages. Instead, travel, volunteer, donate to charities, random acts of kindness, & numerous other deeds to make your world a better place to live. Just as walking along the beach and throwing a sand dollar or any other random living creature that you encounter, go out of your comfort zone & help “make the difference” for some one or somebodies… Life is a gift, live it & give it! I will always give of my love…Mema

More Messages to the Future

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

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.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
