Dear Mom,

Right now, the earth is going to hell in a handbasket. Our planet is begging us to make a change because time is running out. I have always known in the back of my mind that there is climate issue was an impending doom on our future. However, I never realized how pivotal my role is changing the climate issue is. I, as an individual, can contribute to helping my children, and your grandchildren have a healthier planet. By taking steps to be more eco-friendly every day I am making a change.

I have been really trying to turn lights and appliances off whenever I am not directly using them. I know there are many actions I can do personally to contribute but I also want to focus my attention on educating those on the climate issue and how it affects every inhabitant on earth. I want to use my voice and education to join forces with others to make change. I have learned a lot over the semester about how much of an impact we have made on our climate. The evidence is overwhelming and evident. However, I am hopeful. I am hopeful for change and hopeful for a brighter future. I am hopeful for a unified force in tackling this issue head on and being the generation that really makes a change.

I know you drove yourself crazy trying to figure out the cause of your cancer. We know it wasn’t genetic and it is scary to think that it had something to do with our environment and community, but it is possible. So many people in our town have been diagnosed with cancer in the past five years, too many actually. I want to make a change to make sure that is not a trend in the future.

More Messages to the Future


To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.


Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.


Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?


My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.


Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.


Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.


Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.


I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.


Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.


Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.


Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.
