Dear Myself,

I’ve spent my whole life with you, and I think I know you pretty well. I have so many memories with you that I can just dig up, half of the time I don’t even know I have them deep in my mind.

I hope that it would be a healthier Earth, and knowing the habits and things we all do, I don’t expect everyone to completely change their life. Maybe they could just get better, though.

To try my best to stay aware of climate change affects, I hope to help YOU do that too! Being aware makes it more likely to change a bit of my lifestyle.

You may have a future, but you don’t know how it’ll be. I can hope it’ll be better!

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
