Dear Generations to Follow,

I promise to make conscious decisions toward sustaining the environment from the waste I create to the food that I consume, for thoughtfulness is the first step towards change. Hopefully through the trials and errors of today, you learn from the mistakes that we make now, learn from the lessons we are taught now, and make decisions that then allow for a healthy generation after you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

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.

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

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.
