Dear Future Generations,

I hope that you will not have to grow up in fear of tomorrow, in fear of the destruction of your home. I hope that instead you will grow up with inspiration from this climate revolution, that you will know you can make a difference. I hope you keep on changing the world for the better.

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

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

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
