Dear future people,

Well. We messed up, didn’t we? Humanity. Currently, we’re in the process of completely ruining the only place we have to call home. Yay us? Luckily, at the time this is being written, many people are starting to wake up and try to do something about this mess we’ve all collectively created. People are using less plastic, using less fossil fuels to school and work, and other such things. I am now and will be lowering my waste and fossil fuel consumption. Unfortunately, due to the extreme negligence of the people before us, we’re still not on the right track. So, I’m going to work harder. Raise awareness, protests, and hopefully fix this mess before it’s too late. And on behalf of everyone, I’m sorry. If we fail. If we don’t fix this, and you never get to see polar bears, or arctic ice caps, or trash-less beaches. We’re sorry.

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.
