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 Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

Chers Enfants,

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
