Dear Earth,

I hope you’re doing well. I hope we snuffed the fires in your lungs. I hope each breath you take is teeming with the life of the vibrant greenery that paints your sides. I hope we’ve pulled you from the rising waters and protected you from sinking beneath the churning waters. I hope you’ve found time to cool off with the icy chill of the returning ice. I hope you’re free, free to release the sunlight that once fevered your core. I hope we learned. I hope we learned balance, how to coexist with the nature around us. I hope we learn to be grateful guests rather than poisonous parasites. I hope we’re all doing well.

If we’re not, I hope you know how sorry I am.

I’m sorry I broke my promise to protect you.

I hope you’re doing well.

More Messages to the Future

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.
