Dear future self,

it is the year 2022, it is currently earth week, and we are taking the week to appreciate our earth. Sadly, because of global warming, our planet is not doing too well. I am not someone who is majorly connected to nature but growing up I know how important it is to have nature, animals and plants in my life. Even though I have grown up to be someone who is very scared of bugs and things like that, I still love walking in the park to see all the beautiful trees above me and the grass in front of me.

We need to make a change starting now,

whether that is putting your rubbish in the bin instead of throwing it onto the street,

or switching of the light instead of leaving it on when your not in it.

These small changes really make a difference.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.
