Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

Dear future generations,

Please try to treat each other better. Always do things to make your race look good. It’s true that past generations were not considerate enough of the future generations, however you need to change that trend and always look out for the future generations.

People should remember to be more respectful; even small things like being more respectful to the neighborhood you live in: practice little things like smiling and saying hello to your neighbor when you’re going out to your car or picking up your dog’s poop or not throwing your cigarette butt on the sidewalk or picking up a little piece of plastic that somebody misplaced and put it in the garbage. Those little things show respect and they will build a sense of respect for yourself, for your neighbors, and from your neighbors.
Everybody has always taken  so much from nature: past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left. We really have to consider trying to rebuild mother nature for future generations, remembering that we won’t even see the results during our lifetimes —  it could be something that we all work for so that sometime in the future, our great, great, great grandchildren can have a much nicer experience in nature. They will know that we worked hard to put that in place for them.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

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.

 

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 Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
