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

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

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 Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

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.
