Dear Isaac,

I am hoping that you are living in a happier and healthier time and place than we are now.  The world has probably had some major changes since you were 10. People are smart and creative, and hopefully, by working together as just people of the beautiful earth, solutions have been found to curb expected calamities brought on by climate change.
 
You probably remember how crazy I was about  “going solar”, driving my EV, and picking up every bit of plastic in our path.  Alone it couldn’t change the world very much, but combined with others I am hoping it counted. I always feel we can do better, (you know like  “practice longer”)  so today I am promising to take 2 more actions which hopefully,  by modeling and combined with the actions of others, will help preserve this wonderful earth for you and your children ( I hope at least one has your beautiful smile.)
 
July 25, 2020:
* I  promise to eat a minimum of three meals a week with no meat in an effort to switch to a more plant-based diet.

*I promise to make my climate action voice heard louder and to help my friends to do the same by advocating physically and verbally for necessary bold legislation on the state and federal levels.

 

Love you always,
Jima

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear tomorrow,

Unfortunately, our selfishness and excessive greed have closed our eyes to the well-being of the planet, and it has suffered the consequences.

 

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.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

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 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 Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

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 Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.
