Dear future me,

I hope that people are more aware of global climate change at the moment. Although, the fact that it took 31 years to recognize it is horrific for me as it may be too late at this point. I hope at this point, we moved passed fossil fuels and are beginning to use renewable energy more. I also hope that there is better transportation for our people so that way they won’t feel the need to commute with the cars individually.

From the time I’m writing this, the world has made efforts in bringing down our GHGs but it is minimal in my opinion; but it is better than doing nothing at all. I hope you are doing something to sustain global climate change. I’ve learned to use energy-saving appliances and hope you will continue to do the same.

If you see protesters in the streets blocking the road, please tell them there are better ways to get the word out. Just blocking the cars from passing by will make them burn their fossil fuel still. Don’t be afraid to speak up.

Sincerely,

2019 you

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

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.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
