Dear my future children,

I am currently 16 years old. When you are old enough to read this I just wanted to say things that will help you through life. People can be very persuasive, but no matter what stick to what you believe in. Don’t do drugs (if you do at least be responsible with it). Also don’t do anything that can put you in danger.

Eventually you will get a boy or girlfriend, but when you do make sure they make you happy and are always there for you. Also with friends make sure they are always making you laugh and smile and are there for you to pick you up when you’re down.

I know I haven’t met you yet but make sure you help the planet in some way or another, even if it’s as simple as picking up trash you see.

If they still have phones or some device better than an iPhone make sure to have control and don’t use it all the time and get addicted, trust me you don’t want to get addicted to it.

Well that’s all I have to say it’s your life so it’s your choice to do what you think is right.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.
