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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

Tratar de assuntos climáticos com responsabilidade no Brasil

Que se multipliquem estes novos heróis da Terra!

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,

I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

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.
