Dear Lily Hennkens,

I love you so much. I want you to experience all the beauty and wonder life has to offer without worrying about whether you will be able to eat or breathe. There has never been a question in my mind, based on science, that humans are effecting climate change. I am contacting my reps constantly to let them know we care about the future and how important it is to be good caretakers of our planet. I hope you will continue the fight against people who care more about their short-term profits than doing the right thing for humanity.

Love, Auntie

More Messages to the Future

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

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 old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

To my future self,

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

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Oliver,

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