I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

Dear Future Me,

I love taking long walks through the woods with my dog. He enjoys being taken off the leash and running around chasing his favorite tennis ball. Seeing him happy makes me happy.

The woods have always been one of my favorite places to be. It brings me serenity and helps me stay connected with nature. But, a lot of our actions are impacting the trees, such as our diet. I want to be able to enjoy the beautiful and healthy woods in the future, just like I do now with my dog.

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees. I will eat less meat to reduce the amount of forests being cut down for ranches and agriculture. I will be sure to vote for people in power who consider and act upon the environmental issues. I will use less paper. And, I promise I will plant a tree.

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 my children and grandchildren,

Nobody seems to be taking the necessary action to change these things.

 

To the people of tomorrow, my family of tomorrow, the me of tomorrow,

As only one person I know it sounds wild like you can’t change the whole world, but maybe you’ll read this and share it with your friends, and they’ll share it with theirs and that right there will make the hugest difference.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

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

 

Dear Future,

The beauty and grace that still prevails in our world is my inspiration to bring about change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear children of the future,

I will never forget my love for my mother, the love she had for the earth, the love the earth showed her, and the love they both have shown me.
