Dear future family,

My promise to you is that I will always take into consideration the generations to come who must inevitably endure the consequences of the decisions we are making today in regards to our environment. Although it is 2018 and we have had rapid advancements in technology and science, climate change is still a hotly debated topic that many do not believe in, most notably our current president. I am so passionate and driven to provide you a clean and healthy earth, with a thriving ecosystem that I have devoted my course studies to developing policy that regulates environmental issues. I promise that throughout my years I will lobby and advocate for cleaner methods of energy production so that I can leave you with technological advances in renewable energy. I will also fight for laws that protect and conserve our delicate ecosystems that are being lost due to deforestation, so that you and your grandchildren are able to experience a rainforest and temperate evergreen forests. I cannot project what the future may hold, but I promise that in this lifetime I will be devoted to ensuring you will not be burdened with the effects of climate change due to my generations inability to bring about change.

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

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,

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.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.
