Dear Future Generations,

I hope everyone that was here before you took charge and decided to make a difference to protect this planet, or at least tried. I hope you get to observe all the beautiful creatures that live among us and you get to experience the serenity that comes with being surrounded by nature. I hope people realize that conserving nature is more important than all the materialistic things that are glorified. I promise to do everything that’s in my power to save our beautiful planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
