Dear loved one,

I live in a funny time lately – a changing world, with believers and nonbelievers of this change. Our president and people with authority deny climate change but the rest of us know the truth. It is difficult to feel like a single person like me can make a difference but I’m trying my best for your future. I commute each day on the bus to cut down on my carbon emissions from driving. I eat less red meat, since all of the cow’s farts are adding to the carbon build up. I buy local and sustainable foods and clothing whenever possible. I am an advocate for the environment in hopes that we can come out alive from this global shift in temperature that keeps on getting worse as time goes by. The world is changing and I’m changing with it. Each day I set a goal to make more environmentally conscience decisions to benefit this planet and give you a better life.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Great Grandchildren,

If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

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 Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

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 loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
