Dear Emma,

You think a lot about how individual acts and lifestyle changes are necessary for people to understand what is they are truly impacting. Research and volunteering can help you to make more positive impacts on the environment, while abandoning old habits that are detrimental to our ecosystem. You want to live waste free, but you can’t convince those around you that it’s possible. It’s the hypocrisy of humanity, but today it’s possible. One thing to remember is that you’ve adopted a way to divert food waste from the landfill and prevent climate change, but what about food packaging! You need to eat more fresh food, not just to avoid food packaging, but also to benefit your health! Another really important part of the environment is education; so many people live their life as if the Earth is disposable, but it’s so much more than that, and since you know and are continuing to lean more and more about the reality of the environment, you can help in bringing awareness. Today, your promise is to prevent waste, promote education, stay healthy, and live sustainably.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear my future family,

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

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.
