Dear Children,

Climate change is incredibly real and incredibly scary. Though it may seem too big of a task to bear on your shoulders, take it head on anyways, as I plan to. It is imperative for my future, which is also yours, to sacrifice many behaviors that harm your environment (long showers, supporting big food corporations, using non-renewable energy). Instead, eat and purchase organically and sustainably, take short and cooler showers, use appliances sparingly, always search for more ways to be environmentally friendly.

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

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.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

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.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

I love you Earth.
