Dear M. Family,

This is a letter to the future us, our future grandchildren, and future great-grandchildren.

The last few generations have made a lot of mistakes in the care of our planet. Today, our family are writing to you, the future, to apologize for the harm that has been done. We hope that we are able to make big enough changes to lessen the impact that it will have for you. We pledge to be more diligent in our efforts to protect the environment and the creatures that live in it. We wish wholeheartedly that your generation makes wiser decisions than ours. There is only one planet Earth. Love it. Respect it. Take care of it.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

Dear… Parents,

Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.

 

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 My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

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.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.
