Dear Niro,

I hope in your time coming up that you will learn to be a care taker of our precious earth and instill green practices in your daily life beyond recycling. You’re blessed to be part of a community of families to make it part of their mission + part of their lifestyle. My promise to you is to lead by example: to eat locally grown food and eat less meat. This year for gift giving, I promise to buy donations to our local conservation groups and/or experiences. I promise to walk, take public transit and bike every chance I get.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

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.
