Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

We are currently pumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and not doing too much to stop it. Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority to really do anything about it. We see the threat in the near future and what it can do to your generation, but we don’t seem to care about it. We have resource issues and we are struggling to feed our own population. I am doing so much on a personal level to be able to spread the word on this. It is sadly not enough, but i will be there for us because i care about these issues. My schooling is going toward these problems. I know it will be harder for you in the future, but i have no doubt, under the pressure of many lives lost that we will figure it out. Do everything that you can to on a personal level to reduce your waste. Because if everyone lived like a wasteful person, the world would be in way worse shape. Pick up the slack for those who didn’t care now.

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

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.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

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.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
