Dear Future Self,

As of today April 23, 2020, you are 21 years old. You now have more potential than ever to do something about climate change. Take action now, start by making small changes like, eating less red meat and more fish. It’ll be better for you health wise anyway. In a few years you’ll have your own family that you will teach ways in which you can help Earth. Climate change is something serious, not everyone believes it, but you do. It’s 2020 and the U.S barely even does anything to combat climate change. But every small change counts and makes a difference.

My promise is to take action and be one of the people that will make an impact on Earth by reducing the toxins that affect climate change. I will do that by watching what I eat and incorporating more fruits and veggies, I will be managing my online ordering and not order from long distance countries, I will recycle plastics, and try to avoid any type of plastic utensils.

By taking action now, you will be giving amazing opportunities for future generations to explore the Earth you once did when you were younger and now. In the coming years, I hope to see that Earth has blooming seasons, the arctic poles once again have layers of thick ice to go see and tour, the rainforest will have all of its rare species and most importantly Earth will be able to stick around for us for many years to come. See you soon.. 🙂

More Messages to the Future

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.
