Dear kids,

Today I taught a lesson about climate change and the importance of a united global response which led to a discussion on the importance Paris Agreement.  This made me reflect on when I went to high school and the optimism I had with the Kyoto agreement and the belief we were at the cusp of change.  Decades later it is your generation and the growing youth movement that gives me hope.

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.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

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.
