Dear future,

It’s 2020 and a lot of things are going on, there is a pandemic. I don’t know who will read this message but I have a lot to say about climate change. Many people might not be thinking about it right now, and many think it’s not a big deal. But if we don’t do something soon then we are jeopardizing the future, who knows what earth is going to be like in 2050. I hope the oceans are not surrounded by trash, I hope vehicles don’t need to run on gas, I hope everyone will be using reusable bags and straws, I hope all shampoo and body wash will be solid, and made with no packaging. I hope more clothing is recycled and reused. These are just some of the hopes I have for 2050, but none of this will happen if nobody takes notice of climate change any sooner. All I ever wanted was a healthy planet to live on, with no pollution making it harder to breathe. Please it’s not that hard I am not asking I am telling you, please just use the dam metal straw, or bring that reusable bag to the grocery store.

I wish you all a healthy, safe, and clean world. Full of happiness:)

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
