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 Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Future,

I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear kids of America,

Please eliminate plastic everything

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?
