Dear future generations,

Right now, I am feeling scared for the future of the earth, but hopeful for the direction we are going in. Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening. They are scared of the power we have to make the changes that are necessary.

I continue to ride my bike to class, I have been vegetarian for a year and a half and have severely cut down dairy consumption, and mostly shop at consignment or thrift stores. Reusing is key!

If you keep loving and spreading peace, the world is full of endless possibilities and opportunities.

Best wishes to everyone everywhere, and rock on!

Love, Rebecca

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
