Dear future kid(s),

I want you to know that I am not just entering the environmental field because it is something that makes me happy, I’m doing it because the whole world enjoys a chance to enjoy life.

As much as it might scare me as a parent, I’ll let you and your friends go play in the woods. I’ll just be glad you have woods to play in.

As much as I might want to my favorite type of green beans in the garden, I’ll let you pick your favorite kind to plant instead, I’ll just be glad we have workable soil.

As much as I might want to go home after a long day at the beach, I’ll try to wait just a little longer, and remember that I should be thankful you have clean water to swim in.

There’s a lot of directions this world can go in, and I’m hoping to hep make it one that we can enjoy together for the rest of our lives. After all, if you have kids, I would definitely like to meet my grandchildren.

From,
Ryan

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

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 Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
