To anyone who has heard my music,
I promise to care about the planet.
I vow that I will try to make a difference every day, so that you may enjoy the world as I have.
Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
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 Future Ryan,
I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.
The gift for next generation,
To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
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?
To the People in my Future Life,
Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.
To My Fellow Two-Spirits,
Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.
