Dear sweet planet Earth and future child,
Dear future child whatever your name is,
Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
Our planet is crazy. I pledge to be an innovator to make sustainable living real.
I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.
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.
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.
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax
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 X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
