Dear Emma,

I fear where you may be right now. I have seen how the climate is affecting people now and if we keep traveling on our perilous path I can’t imagine how it will affect people by 2050. Lands are of the verge of drowning, an entire continent is in flames, and drought-borne wars are plaguing the Middle East. I can imagine how this can grow apocalyptic by 2050. Of course, I can also see myself doing fine in such a dangerous world, but I do not wish for you to be there. Not that you can’t handle it, you attack me all the time so I know that you can put up a fight if you had to. I just don’t want you to have to be there. I will work endlessly to mend the human relationship with Nature, whom we have separated ourselves from long by now. Hopefully, I can help make so that we have the same range of impact on Earth as the rest of life. Then, if all goes well you and many others can share a relationship with nature that is much more healthy than the one we share now. I’m in my first year of college and I am learning and building plans that will help me fight this climate crisis. Hopefully, the future will be full of flying, environmentally savvy vehicles and hover boards, self drying clothing, pizzas that you can hydrate and cook from small to large in a matter of seconds, and maybe a DeLorean, instead of high seas, drought, fire, and war.

Your Brother,

Wyatt Day

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Dear Eleanor,

Send new updated messages to your loved ones at DearTomorrow

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

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.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
