Dear Lincoln,

I hope that the world that I have left to you is a healthy and happy world.

I hope that you have learned to cherish, love and respect nature like we have tried to instill in to you since your birth.

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet. There were role backs on air quality and water quality standards to the point where we had to be constantly looking at the air quality index to figure how long we could play outside.

There were climate skeptics and outright rejectors of the science.

My hope is that the work that I have done (writing letters to the editor, tabling and presenting at small events and educating and hearing others concerns) has made a difference and made it so that you could live a life where your children can feel safe to play outside.

Love your dad,
Bryan Schroeder

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear children,

Despite all the difficulties, we are from a family whose principles are honesty and love for others, and that’s what I want to share with you.

 

To my daughter,

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.

 

Dear June and Colin,

I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
