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

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

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

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.
