Dear Maman and Papa,

You came of age among Beatniks, but you chose to raise goats and had long hair. You raised us in the sixties, but you skipped the flower dresses and the bell-bottoms. Instead you ordered bulk organic food through a people’s cooperative.

You showed us how to compost before anyone ever talked about it in the news. You taught us how to repair and re-use before it ever became a slogan. You patiently corrected our mis-recycling until we learned to chuck each item into the right bin. You taught us to grow our food ourselves and to cook EVERYTHING from scratch. You taught us to work together while singing songs.

I hope I have faithfully passed on these values to Emmelyne and Solenn, and my dear girls, I hope you will pass on these values to your children, too. I love you and am so grateful for your contributions to preserving our beautiful planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear kids of America,

Please eliminate plastic everything

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

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 Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.
