Dear Mother,

I remember the first Christmas that wasn’t white. I think I knew by then that climate changes’ effects were happening around us and if we didn’t take actions soon it would be too late. I apologize for not speaking about climate change more often at our dinner table and with other family members too. I feel as if I have cheated them out of some knowledge that they may have found useful. I wish I had suggested we start using less plastic back when I was in high school but sadly I didn’t. Moving forward, I am looking to the positive actions I can take now. As you know I’ve always been interested in politics and advocacy, I’ve just never connected my advocacy back to the climate. That was a mistake. The promise I make to today is to commit to helping change our state’s infrastructure. I want to help craft policy to make out homes and buildings more energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. I know its a long road that will be filled with opposition but these are necessary actions. You have always inspired me to stand up for what I believe in and I appreciate your words of encouragement greatly. Thank you,

Your loving daughter Apryle

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
