Dear Future Children,

I am writing this letter to you as I sit in Starbucks on March 4, 2018 at 12:00 pm. By the time you read this letter, you may be getting ready to move away from home and will be entering your young adult life. You are preparing to live on your own and develop traits that will ultimately shape you as a person.

I am writing this letter in hopes to inspire you to make changes like I have in my life that will help better the environment for your children and theirs. I am currently taking a sustainability class where we are learning about all of the effects of climate change and what we can do as a community and world to make this world a better place for future generations, like you, to live in. I have become very passionate about this topic and I hope to raise you to have this same passion in your heart and soul.

With the amount of things going on in the world that are out of our hands, there are so many things that are in our hands that humans are able to control. As a community, more people need to be educated on these things to learn what their effect is on the planet and what they can do to slow down the process of climate change.

Unfortunately, this problem has become so big that to many people it seems uncontrollable. I am writing this letter as a promise to you that I am going to continue to make changes in my life that will better your lives. I want to protect this planet so you can all receive the beauty that I have received in this world.

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
