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. For any normal person, it is important to treat the world with respect by knowing and understanding the ranges and limits Earth can provide for ourselves. Unfortunately, there are people that are shadowed by lust for greed who feel that harming Earth will gain them complete control on the economy. Because of the negative influence these people will have on the climate, it is important for all of us to make the Earth a better place to live during the difficult times you will face in the future.

As I continue to live my life as a working adult, I often think about how much future generations will have to suffer through the mess my generation has made. These are often bad thoughts and feelings of regret that I know that I myself cannot fix. And if I am being brutally honest, none of this would affect me in the future knowing that I will someday die due to age in the future. With these negative thoughts in my mind, I hope that the future will have a better sense of hope and willingness to make a difference in Earth’s climate change. Small differences like reducing energy usage could help, but it won’t make any global impacts unless the entire population takes part. Ultimately, when you grow up in the future, I hope you will understand the pain and suffering we have put you through. Just promise me that you will become Earth’s saviors unlike myself.

Only you can make the difference.

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.
