Dear offspring,

First and foremost I love you and I don’t even know you yet but I know you’re amazing. I really hope we fixed the climate mess that the generation before me wrecked. I’m sorry if it didn’t, but I promise you I have and will live a very sustainable life. I love you.

With love, Your Mother

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

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 Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
