Dear Elliot, Audrey, and Miles,

You all are so very young, just starting to become the people who you will grow to be. I hope to help you to strive to be more than yourselves, more than your own wants and to embrace the world with open arms and curiosity. To do this, I promise to lead my life in a way that you would be proud of. I will reduce my consumerism, be active in my community and engaged in politics that work to preserve the earth and it species. We have already lost so many animal and plant species and more will follow that path to extinction, but we have an important opportunity right now to be heroes for future generations.  I promise I will fight so that you will know a world that is full of life, animals, trees, plants, and flowers and so that you will not have to bear witness to the suffering that climate change will bring.

Love,

Linda

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

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.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

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 Kiya,

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

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,
