Dear future child,

Sometimes, I think about your future a lot. But not in the sense of what you’ll grow up to be- maybe an astronaut, teacher, fashion blogger? I think about what this world will look like for you and what consequences your generation due to the negligence from previous generations. Will this world be a better place? I sure hope so.

You will know I was born and raised on the West Coast, specifically the San Francisco Bay Area, and that I grew up with droughts and dry hills and bush fires. I’m not sure what this place will look like in the future, but I hope the beauty of the Bay is not ravaged by climate change and receding coast lines. I hope you can see the beauty that I have seen, I want it to be preserved for you and your children and your children’s children.

So I’m trying my best to incite some sort of change. Right now, in 2017, I have decided to educate myself more on sustainability and I have a desire to change my wasteful habits. For now I am some sort of novice, I’m not studying environmental science and I continue to contribute a lot more waste than I am aware of.

But I hope I will be able to read this letter with you and see the progress I will have made in transforming my impact on this planet. I hope to provide you with faith in humanity. We can create change if we use our voices. Don’t be afraid to use yours.

I will end with one last hope for you. I hope that you will see the earth and its beauty but also the wonderful communities people have built in working to save it.

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.

 

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 Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
