Dear future son or daughter,

I sometimes feel scared about creating you and bringing you into such an unstable world. However, I promise that when and if I am blessed to bring you into this world, it will be a world full of beauty. Although I know there will always be ugliness and fear, I promise to do whatever is in my power to keep the Earth clean and beautiful for you and your family to enjoy. There are few things I love more than spending time enjoying nature with those I love. I want you to be able to have the same types of experiences I had growing up and in my adult life. I promise to give you the chance to climb trees and hike up mountains–to see the Redwood Forest and the many oceans. I promise to stand up against those to seek to destroy the planet for either personal gain or shortsightedness. I promise to do what I can to help the Earth grow and flourish.

Love, Elizabeth (Mom)

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Anya,

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.
