Dear Tomorrow,

Make no mistake – we were aware of these problems you no doubt realize today. Unfortunately, economics and politics seem to favour the wealthy and powerful more than the common man (Something, for the world’s sake, I hope has changed). While most Americans are reasonable people, some benefit more from forcing others to live a life of inaction. As such, we have plenty of motivated people, but little initiative or resources. Fortunately, things are changing. It’s a work in progress, but I hope people take this as serious as my generation seems to. Hopefully you see this – although I can’t promise anything in our current state. Just know that there are, in fact, reasonable (and vocal) people alive in the 2010s.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Dear Tripp,

I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

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 Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

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 ride a bike and take a smart train.
