Dear future society,

I don’t want to grow old and tell you stories of how amazing polar bears were. I don’t want to tell you stories of how old I was when Florida went underwater, or tell you how I only got to see snow only a few times before it disappeared and how wonderful it was to play in it. I don’t want to grow up and tell my children I never got to see a living coral reef in person because they all died. I don’t want to grow up having to wear masks in the future because we can’t breath in without feeling like we’re getting cancer. I don’t want to grow up and never get to go to California because it’s underwater. I don’t want to grow up because I’m afraid our future society won’t be able to see the amazing things I got to experience. I’m afraid to grow up. I’m afraid for my future children and their friends. I’m afraid for my future grandchildren and their spouse. But most of all, I’m afraid for our world.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

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.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
