Dear future self,

2018 is a time to be alive. Technology and the world around you is so much more advanced than when you were a child. With all the technology around you, you are able to have the reports related to climate change at the tip of your fingers. Climate change is no joke and I hope you have continued to live your life in respect to the climate. You have made the decision to go vegetarian in 2018 and I hope you have kept that lifestyle as long as you could especially while reading this letter. I hope you recycle and reuse as much as possible. Everything you’ve done today can help for a better tomorrow. Please make sure your kids and family are fully aware of climate change and how dangerous it will be if humans continue to pollute our earth drastically. I expect the world and its skies to be much prettier now. I expect more eco-friendly products and fuel options to be readily available at affordable prices. I also expect much more people to change their diets in respect to climate change.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Luna,

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

 

My dear daughters,

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