dear children of the future,

I am sorry that this is what it has come to. It is not fair that you will be living through the pain, chaos, and destruction that human ignorance, greed, and desire for power have caused. Know that you are stronger than you think and that millions of people before you have stood to make a change so that you can continue the work. You are not alone.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Grandchild,

I now feel less overwhelmed and powerless, and I am determined to fight for our planet and your future.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
