Dear Sophie,

I never imagined myself living to see such a beautiful world go through so much chaos, but I would hope things are different now. In 2017, you were just a one-year-old with two little teeth and the biggest brown eyes I have ever seen. But, the world was dealing with turmoil while you were just beginning to blossom. The temperatures were high, the winds were roaring, hurricanes destroyed lives, and humanity was lost after Donald Trump was elected President. However, your loving aunt has devoted her career to help make a change in the way the world sees renewable energy to ensure a safer, more colorful, and vibrant world for you to live in and experience. I hope you read this and know that I made an impact so that you can go on and do bigger and better things for the future.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

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 Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
