Dear Eleanor,

This is the second message that Trisha Shrum has written to her daughter.

We started composting again to send that carbon back to the vegetable garden instead of sending it to the landfill where it turns into methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. You love to come with me to the community growing center to drop off the compost and play in the grass and dirt under the shade of trees. Giving myself a reason to go to this little oasis in our neighborhood a few times a week has been a lovely thing for my nature-hungry soul.

All my love,
Trisha

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

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.

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
