Dear Tess,

Climate change threatens your children’s future, and your children deserve much, much more than that. Because this is a issue that I feel so strongly about, I promise to bike everywhere that I would drive during my time here at UVM, and I promise to turn off/unplug every appliance or electronic in my possession when not in use. I promise to minimize my water usage by taking shorter showers. I urge you to think about this issue and the impact that you could have on not just your children, but everyone’s children. What promises will you make?

More Messages to the Future

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear Evan,

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

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.
