Dear Future Earth,

I look at you and thank you for all that you offer me. I look at the sky and the ocean and think about the endlessness that’s behind it. I think about the great memories I’ve experienced living on you. Living on a planet with miles and miles of new land, new cultures, new people, and new inventions is a gift that many people seem to take advantage of. Many look at you and destroy you in a heartbeat, but I look at you and take it all in and breathe you in. The way your rivers run and how your waves crash on the sand, the sound of raindrops hitting the concrete and the after smell it brings the air, the forests that seem to be endless and dark at night and the way you bring happiness to everyone when you shine bright with green hills and cool winds that blow through in the summer. I thank you for all the beauty you bring and I wish for you to stay this way for eternity. I hope future generations take care of you and look at you the way I look at you. Don’t leave us, don’t die out because of global warming, don’t turn brown because of droughts, don’t crumble because of earthquakes, don’t drown because of tsunamis and don’t be heartbroken when people hate you because they’re only mad at themselves. Take all your beauty and make it better where people look at you and smile, smile because they’re grateful they live on a beautiful planet like you. Dear future generations, take care of the earth, she’s one of a kind.

More Messages to the Future

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

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 Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

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 Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
