Dear Tomorrow,

We hope that this letter finds you well, and that you are able to be proud of the world we have left you. Today, I see that as a hope, but not realistic. We are hurting this planet at an alarming rate. The beautiful animals we see on the endangered species list, may just be pictures in a textbook to you. I pray this is not what the future will show. I hope you never see an emaciated Polar Bear, or extreme weather that is starting to plague the world. We are working to change today. We are working to recycle, retrofit buildings, and raise awareness through education. Every day I feel the change getting closer. However, I hope this change begins to grow. If not, I hope your generation does not follow our footsteps. If we don’t make the change, I hope it is not too late and you can change the narrative for us, and for the world of your tomorrow.

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear Resident of 14 Back Road in Dover, NH

Twenty-nine years from now I hope you are looking at the property and seeing the mature results of this effort. These plants, shrubs and trees will all help to pull CO2 from the air.

 

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.
