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

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

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 Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
