Dear children,

Hi lovelies,

How is your day going? I promise to keep fighting for a better world for you and your children, and for all of us. It is possible, the planet has so many gifts and abundance. There are many creatures and beings that understand how to live in balance, and we forgot for a while, but we are beginning a slow remembering. I hope it is not too late.

Love you to all the stars and back,
Rachel

More Messages to the Future

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear son,

Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Children,

I wish I had a crystal ball and could peep into it to see you all happy and safe in a world that nourishes you and that is also nourished by you, a world where the resources it provides are as valued as the people in it and not frittered away by greed and power.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.
