dear tomorrow,

i am sorry. but i had dreams and goals that i was chasing, a selfish act, perhaps i single handedly couldve been the genius that changed the world, but i never took that path.

i instead wanted things that i have never seen, for the benefit of myself and my future. a truly selfish view in a selfish world. i am a product of the 21st century, a technological revolution of vanity and self interest.

so i am sorry in hindsight, but not sorry enough to have dedicated my life toward it. this cause is too big for one man, too powerful for a group of people. it seems unreachable to the masses and i feel now i am at the tipping point of accepting this fate. letting go of any potential world of irreversible effects.

i hope you are the generation to have figured it out, laughing at this message as if it were taken care of within a few years for you. i hope you have gov’s of sanity and humanitarian effort, a utopia of technology running the world, whilst also saving it.

my life enters its twilight, but as it does, i vow to dedicate my twilight to the cause, to further push the planet into a world of net zero emissions and eons of sustainability if that is even possible.

kind regards.

DTA

More Messages to the Future

 

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

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

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.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.
