Dear Lucas,

I will continue to learn, improve, grow, and even fight to ensure the world is just as beautiful when you’re 80 as it was the day you were born. In fact, I hope it’s even more beautiful. You deserve a beautiful world in your lifetime. I love you. Always. Mom.

More Messages to the Future

 

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 future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
