Dear grandchildren,

 

You were not born yet, but I’m very concerned about your future. Not just yours, but all our future generations. I’m so proud of you because if you are learning this letter it’s because you are interested in your future and the future of our planet. Unfortunately, now we don’t know how to deal with consumerism. Our planet has been suffering the consequences of our material wills. It’s a shame to see how the human race can do such bad things to have what they want.

So, please love one another. Do not do to others what you wouldn’t like being done with you. If every person in this world could understand this principle, wars, pandemics, poverty, and famine, wouldn’t exist. We are one race, the human race; there is no difference between us. Cultivate a sound mind and do not leave room for bad thoughts. Be careful, everything you sow one day you will reap, whether good or bad.

Now I’m teaching your mom, so she could teach you about these things one day. You are not too small, you can do great things! The creation has a plan for you, a huge purpose. You can make a difference wherever you go! Be brave and kind!

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you got your dream job of using your business degree to reduce co2 emissions and promote sustainable energy.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

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 Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
