Dear Future Self,

I promise to walk. I promise to enjoy nature and share that love with everyone around me. I promise to donate to rainforests and wildlife. I promise to start a garden. I promise to become a beekeeper. I promise to protect the bees. I promise.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Tara,

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

 

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.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

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.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.
