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 earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

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 brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

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 to go to the farmer’s market more

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.
