Dear future me,

Right now, the earth isn’t doing so hot. Or actually, it is too hot. See what I did there? This summer, the summer of 2021, you experienced your first California forest fire. You were in New Jersey. The smoke had traveled into the air and created a haze that held the sun so that it was somehow both gloomy and bright out. It created such an intense sunrise you took a picture on the way to work. You thought it was really cool, until you found out what it was from.

People do not care about things that do not make them money. Well, that is a lie, but it seems as though those running big businesses do not. Oil and fossil fuels are ruining the Earth. However, there are people who see the wrong and are trying to counter act it. There was someone named Doug that came to your school in the fall of 2021 to discuss the importance of rebuilding a better planet by planting native plants and restoring biodiversity. It gave you a lot of hope.

You know much more about taking care of the environment. Please use that information.

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.


Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.


Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

I will work to restore the wetlands.


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 Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.


To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.


To my Beloved Future Children,

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


Dear Tomorrow,

Dear Luna,

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


Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him
