Dear Owen, Sura, Jessie, Jamie, and Eamon,

You are the kids of the future. It seems scary, climate change seems unstoppable, but with your family by your side and me as a guide, we can do anything.

I promise to be there for you and empower you to make a change. Your grandparents might not understand, but that’s okay! We are the force of nature that can change the trajectory of society.

You don’t need that new iPhone or headphones – everything you need is outside! All the answers to the problems exist here right now!

We are in this together. I make a promise to show you that we can do it as long as we do it together. Today, I make the promise to educate as many people as I can in a loving way to get them inspired to take climate action.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

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.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

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 Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

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 Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
