Dear future children,

Hi. I want you to know that I’m doing what I can to make sure you’ll have a home. I won’t bring you into this world before knowing that it’ll at least outlast your generation. That would be ridiculously unfair. Marches, strikes, petitions, and conferences have been happening at a very rapid speed. People are requesting change and the leaders who won’t be going alone with that will soon be out of the way. We need change. We need leaders who will enact change. And we will get that. I will get that. For you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

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 I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

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.

 

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 Tomorrow

I promise to educate others TODAY.

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.
