Dear Future Generations,

I hope you can forgive us. Some of us are really trying to fix the mess that has been created, and I am wishing it will be enough. There is too much greed and corruption in this world, and the power is not in the hands of those who care. The leaders of our nations are not behind us, they are taking care of things they deem to be more important like engaging in wars and building new and improved weapons. They say they care about our safety; they do not. They care about making money. If our leaders cared about our safety, they would be protecting the Earth. Instead, they are focusing on improving ways in which we can destroy it more quickly and efficiently. This is the situation humanity is in right now.

We know what needs to happen in order for us to survive, and people are beginning to listen. We need to adopt vegan lifestyles, stop driving cars, produce less waste, etc. Throughout the world, veganism is on the rise. Although it has had a slow start, support for plant-based diets has taken the world by storm. In my own family, three out of eight of us have adopted vegan lifestyles, whereas three years ago none of us were vegan. Things are changing, I hope it is not too late.

I am trying so hard to protect you. I lead a vegan lifestyle, I refuse to purchase a car (even when it has seemed like a necessity), I attend all sorts of marches and protests calling on our leaders to take action. Will it be enough? I am only one person. I do not know what else I can do, and it is frustrating beyond belief.

I am sorry humanity has borrowed so much from the future that there is so little left for you. I hope it is enough. You deserve to experience a world as beautiful as it is today in 2017. You can count on me to do everything I can to ensure this happens.

More Messages to the Future

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

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 future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
