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 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.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Dear Daughter,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”
