Dear Future Generations,

I hope that your problems aren’t nearly bad as our problems today. I strongly encourage everyone to be educated about the earth, politics and about tragedies going on not just in your city or country but around the world. Be aware about what others are going through and always spread awareness about things you think are right. I hope that your generation has a strong leader who is educated on things like climate change, extinction, etc, because our generation didn’t have someone like that. I hope that your generation isn’t as selfish as mine. Since we are responsible for destroying the earth, we should also be responsible enough to fix it. I would like your generation to carry on for many many many more years but this isn’t possible without change.

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

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.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

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

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

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.
