Dear Susanna,

I want to tell you that I am doing everything I can so that you and everyone you love can be happy. I want to take initiative of my life. With the way things are going now, you might be living on a very sad planet. But, I want to tell you that starting now and continuing forever, I’ll do anything I can to make sure this planet, our home, is the healthiest it can be. Because you’re worth it.

Sincerely,

Susanna Montgomery

More Messages to the Future

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

 

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 Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.
