Dear son,

I don’t think you’re streets will see loads of crime I think you’ll see law enforcers with moderate protection ample in diplomacy and fairness. I think your fellow citizens will all carry themselves well with good bearing and graceful poise. I imagine you as custodians of nature. I imagine you will learn from nature, how it ‘works’ and use this rapport to create the technologies you’ll need. Your relationships may be long term and you will know your roles for lifetimes not just a decade.

More Messages to the Future

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

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.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
