Dear future children,

I hope both for my sake and for yours that I have taught you to be intentional with your actions and understanding of your impact on the world around you, to respect all living creatures around you and to believe in the inherent value that all things (both living and non-living) hold. Promise that you will continue to live a lifestyle that leaves as little a footprint on the world as possible, and that you will dedicate your lives to helping others do the same. I am making that promise now, and I vow to teach you to do the same.

More Messages to the Future

 

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!

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

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 future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,

I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.
