Dear Lucie,

This letter is for you, your future and the future of your children I hope to meet one day.

You have been fortunate to have been to many of the wonderful natural places this country and the world has in abundance. I want you and your children to have the same opportunity to experience the amazing landscapes, lakes, rivers, forests, mountains and the plants and animals that thrive there.

I want you and generations to come to be protected from toxic air, water, irresponsibly farmed food and dangerous products. I want you to live in a world that is smart about using its precious resources and resolute in battling the forces that contribute to our changing climate.

To that end, I promise to do what I can to contribute to these efforts. I promise to support local organizations like NYPIRG that have kept fracking out of beautiful upstate New York. I promise to support renewable energy starting with choosing wind power from my local utility and investing in solar panels for our home. I promise to ride my bicycle and much as I can and take mass transit when I can’t. I promise to reduce waste, recycle and compost our food waste at our local community garden. I promise to consume locally produced and organic food. I promise to continue to support to education for underserved communities as everyone should have the opportunity to participate in solving these complex problems.

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

Love mom

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Eleanor,

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,
