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.

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Future,

I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.
