Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry for the situation you have been left with. I would like to be hopeful in saying that we solved our own problems but the realist in me knows that we left you with lots of problems. I hope you know that there were plenty of people who really cared about what we were doing to the planet. But for every person who cared, there was someone who didn’t. I was someone who cared. At 18, there isn’t much I can do to make significant changes, but I hope to someday be in a position to change that. As of now, I worry about the little things that I’m in control of. To mention a few, I have completely ridded single use plastics from my life, I bike to and from school, in the summer I carpool as much as I can, I wear my clothes until they no longer fit and then donate them to goodwill, as well as many other things. I really hope we didn’t ruin the planet beyond repair, because its our only home. Again, I am sorry for the world we left you and if it is still possible to fix everything, I believe in you.

Best,

Caleb

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

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.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

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.

 

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.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
