Dear Future Generations,

I, much like many in this site, am writing to you in the year 2017. As an individual who lives in the very populated California, it is easy to say that global warming may seem to be very fleeting with how much we don’t see it in comparison to other places in the world. Presentable conditions vary everywhere but that doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. Its 2017, a time where we are known to advancing for the better but with such a dissatisfying president, we can assume that change isn’t completely a stable thing yet. So as I’m writing towards the year of 2050, I’m hoping – praying that people have conformed into a routine that puts our Earth’s priority first above all harmful needs. Sometimes I watch Disney’s Wall-e and wonder just how accurate that movie is because it’s very much possible. In 2050, I hope that we’re a lot less closer to that future. Not only for an older me, but for any possible children or relatives I’ll have. No one wants to live in a bad environment. Make a change, together.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

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

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.
