Dear Future Generations,

Hopefully by the time you read this politicians will have come to their senses and worked towards solving the issue of climate change. As of right now, people everywhere have begun doing their part to make things better. Some help by recycling, others by spending their careers researching solutions for long-term climate change. Help comes in all shapes and sizes and every little thing adds up, but denial is not an option. If you feel overwhelmed or stressed out about climate than do some research for yourself, but turning a blind eye means giving up, and if too many people do that we will not be able to get anywhere. So my final message to you is to step up and do your part, no matter how small, but don’t let climate change conquer without a fight.

More Messages to the Future

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

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.

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
