Dear Makena,

Before you were born, I did everything I knew to do to make sure that you would be healthy: I ate the right food, exercised, meditated and minimized stress. Your father and I celebrated the birth of our healthy baby and named you “The Happy One” and have spent your entire life making sure that you have nothing in the way of fulfilling that meaning of your name.
Early in motherhood, I learned that man-made pollution, toxins and toxic mentalities about our value as people were immediate threats to your well-being and happiness that were outside of my understanding but I refused to accept that they were outside of my control. I began to study these threats and solutions, and soon I began fighting back.
You think that I am famous now; What you may not realize is that people only know me because I have been a very active truthsayer promoting what we must do to create the healthy environment YOU deserve. Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you not one that threatens your existence or hinders your development into your authentic self. For good reason, I’m about the business of creating a world where we can all thrive, love and self-determine, my love.
I know that you have been on this journey with me and I have at times worn myself out but I understand now that I must take care of myself now so that I can be in good health to share the good life our community is creating with you for a very long time. Our world is a reflection of our selves and we have more healing and believing to do as individuals and as a human family so we can make our dreams come true on this planet right now.
I love you.
Eternally yours,
Momma

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

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:

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

Dear 2050,

Our planet is crazy. I pledge to be an innovator to make sustainable living real.

 

Filhota,
