Dear fellow outdoorsman,

I’m writing to you today, to express to you what value the world around us truly gives on a daily basis. For me I truly started to notice it at a young as I found myself outside and in the “wild” at any given moment. I was lured in by the beauty and the pureness that could be found just in the backyard. That’s where the outdoorsman roots start. I started to see what the environment could do for me, yes that may sound selfish, but there’s a wide range of possibilities here. I believe the biggest thing, it has given me are the memories that are shared. The places, and the experiences in these “wild” places are what drive you back every time. Looking back at the short time I’ve been allowed on this earth, so much of the joy inside me and the fullness that is felt comes from these places or the things that reside in them. Not having that growing up or being able to experience something like that at all would leave a void in walk through life. That why there needs to be a respect for our environment, but not only that, strive to understand it and help it grow to what it can be.

-Thank you Sean Tarpley

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

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 Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
