Dear Kasia,

You are the age now that I was when I wrote you this. You were a baby then and I worried about you, about the planet, about our future. I saw so much potential in you since you were born and I hoped that the state of the world would not hinder you and what you decided to do with your brand new life. Now I am an old lady and we are still here, still fighting. Maybe you’ll be writing a similar letter to a baby in your life now. If that’s the case, please know that chances are good that baby will end up writing a letter when she is your age, to another baby. And we will still be here, passing down what we know and fighting to heal ourselves and our planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Ellie,

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

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
