Dear grandkids,

This year we created more homemade gifts and try to encourage your creativity and resourcefulness. That is a quality that all of us need to encourage and practice because with so many of us on this planet, we know that we cannot sustain our present level of fossil fuel use.

We can learn new ways; let’s practice together!

More Messages to the Future

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.
