Dear Tomorrow,

Your life is as important as mine so I promise you I think of you everyday. I limit driving, use energy saving light bulbs, and keep lights off except in darkness to reduce climate change pollution. I eat vegan to reduce climate change pollution and to move people toward greater humanity. I get people to sign petitions and vote to protect our wonderful world. In my small Colorado town, people fight fracking year after year and I help them. I shop ARC and donate to them to recycle. Seventy percent of my yard is beautiful purple flowers today on May 7, 2016. Flowers feed pollinators here throughout the growing season. Together we are growing a better future. I send my love forward to you from Loveland, Colorado.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

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

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.
