Dear future children,

There is a lot happening in the world right now, and it concerns me for the future. Our new president, Donald Trump, has embodied values and ideas that don’t align with mine. The environment isn’t being taken as priority among the leaders of the world. Climate change and environmental degradation seem to be at an all time high. There are children across the globe that don’t have access to food and clean drinking water, while others live in excess. Forests are being cut down, and many species face extinction due to human action. With all of this, I don’t want you to worry, because despite the odds, I have faith and motivation that the world will become a better place. With all of the individuals who are consumed by selfishness, there are ten more who devote their lives to helping. I hope we can learn to live with the environment instead of against it. I hope that we can learn to support one another. I hope that we can care for the plants and animals that we share our space with. I promise, that wherever I end up, I will try my best to make these changes happen. For the people, the planet, the animals, and of course…for you!

Love,

Mom

More Messages to the Future

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your 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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

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 grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
