Dear future children,

I want you to be the best people you can be. I want you to be a better person than I ever was. I don’t want you to be worried about what other people think and focus on yourself, because that’s really what matters to you and to me. To be “the” better person, all you have to do is be kind. Be kind to others, yourself, the environment. The second you let someone get in your way, it will get easier for others to get in the way too. Help others out in life or even with a little clean up in the world. Help your world out, clean up after yourself, save energy, light. It’s on you guys to help our world, physically and emotionally. But most importantly, I want you to know that I will ALWAYS be there for you. Even if I get annoying or frustrated, I WILL care for you.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Anya,

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

Dear Great Grandchildren,

If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.
