Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater. That things have moved so quickly in our lifetimes is overwhelming, but that is no reason to give up. I promise to fight against despair and work to apply my unique skill set to educating and motivating others to take steps to make change for the restoration of our planet. I promise too to exercise my privilege as your mom to help you find ways to feel empowered and impactful in protecting our beloved Mother Earth.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

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

 

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?

 

Dear World,

I vow that I will try to make a difference every day, so that you may enjoy the world as I have.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

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.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
