Dear Mother Nature,

I love you. I want to remain a child at heart and enjoy laying in your golden fields. I want to cherish when the ice turns concrete into a billion little crystals. I want to watch the sunset and sunrise with a cup of coffee. I know I’m young. Only 18 but I have lived 18 years in love of everything you offer. You offer sunshine and rain, snow, immense beauty and desertion.

For as long as I can remember you have acted like a friend to me. I could tell you what was in my heart and over time we would watch each other grow and evolve. It seems you are going through a rough time right now. I’m sorry. I know I could’ve done better and cared about you just a little bit more. It saddens me that the world is in this state.

I hope in time. Soon. Everyone will see how amazing you are and be influenced to treat you right. You deserve better. I hope that we all take the extra step to make some changes, no matter how small they are. It will at least mean we see and we care.

I know I haven’t done the most or tried my hardest, but I promised myself long ago I would enjoy the simple things in life. And I promise that even though I might not be able to every day I will try to thank you for being here for me. I will try to take out red meat from my diet again. I promise to use more natural products and be careful in what I use and do and how it might affect you. I don´t want to lose you and I promise to care and love you forever.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

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.
