Dear Tomorrow,

The path getting here is convoluted. It’s confusing and not something I entirely understand. I won’t pretend to, nor will I ever be able to. I acknowledge that it’s not something I’ll ever be able to fully grasp.

I’ve learned and I am still learning how I can do my part and contribute to something much larger. Though I don’t have all the answers, I promise to still question. Though I’ll never find a solution to make these problems go away on my own, I am a part of a larger community that won’t stop until we do.

They say one man can change the world, but what can an army do? There are many others fighting for the same things as I — reducing the impacts of climate change, equal opportunity and equity for all, economic and political justice — just to name a few. We really are in this together. And together, we’re fighting for a better tomorrow. Though I can’t grasp the magnitude of the societal and environmental issues we face today, together, collectively, we can. Each individual, each story is unique and equally as important and valued. By coming together we can get through this. And so can you.

With love,
Claire

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

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.

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

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.
