Dear future children,

You have been given the opportunity to live in a country that is the most unique place in the world. As you sit back and watch, the world will become more and more decayed. While many sit back and focus on profits and short term gains, those who are not part of the developed and rich will suffer and will be wiped out if action is not taken. It is imperative that we continue to listen to the science that has been researched and proven.

The current state of the United States climate policy is not sustainable and will not be in place for long. I believe the people of this country will begin to realize that ignoring this problem is not an option. While Trump and his EPA head Scott Pruitt continue to dismiss the exigency of this problem, science continues to show the importance of action to save our fellow human beings.

When you are older and able to feel the effects of this problem, you will be met with a new establishment that understands the issues that we have. By this time we will have acknowledged as a society that this problem must be solved. At least this is what I hope and believe will happen. Remember that while you may not feel the effects as closely as some do, those that are in the most impacted regions are in a dire state. In 2060 places like the Maldives and Bangladesh may end up being examples of our failures. Let this stop you from ever feeling the greed that some people feel.

More Messages to the Future

 

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,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear future generations,

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.
