Dear People of the Future,

Everyday I think about what an important yet terrifying time we live in today. So many changes socially, environmentally and politically are occuring, and the future becomes more uncertain as each day passes.  I get so angry at the people who lived before me, who created or allowed for the creation of these social and economic systems that seem impossible to fix. Some days it seems so impossible that I want to give up completely, but then I snap out of it. I know I have a responsibility to you, the people of the future.  I don’t want to be a part of the people who just sat by, pushing responsibilty on everyone but themselves. I want to be a part of the movement of people fighting for a better present and future that we all deserve.

I hope to become and remain a member of this movement by continuing my education in environmental studies (and hopefully finding a career in the field), lifting up the voices of those who go unheard and doing as much as I can to fight for a healthy, just and peaceful future.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

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 Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

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.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
