Dear child,

Earth has been our haven and home since the beginning of our existence. It provided us with food, shelter, and protection, allowing us to thrive into the greedy people we are today. We have been torturing this beauty, sucking the life out of everything it has offered us.

What was green is now concrete and steel; what was blue is now plastic and oil. We have continuously cut down trees to make way for homes and businesses. We have ripped down the fertile soil beneath to build tunnels, mines, and caves, resulting in sink holes and sometimes even death. We have created toxic fumes and pollution, blackening our lungs from the poison we are breathing in. So many factors have caused us to murder and drive so many species to extinction.

Despite all of this, Earth continues to show us it’s love. Birds are still singing, and trees are still dancing. Trees are forcing their way through concrete slabs in hopes to feed off the Sun, to color the Earth again. We do not deserve any of it, so now I will guide you and those around you. There are those who does not understand the risks we are putting into our ecosystem. They do not understand the legacy we are leaving behind for our future generations.

Today, I hope you are treating Earth how we were supposed to. Give Earth the love it gave us. Prove to Earth humans can create and heal, without harming the environment and ecosystems. Treat Earth how you would want to be treated. Humans are only here to stay temporarily, and if we don’t rid these dangerous habits, we will drive ourselves into extinction.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

Anya,

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

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 Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!
