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 darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

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.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

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.
