Dear Tomorrow,

I waited to the end of my class to write this letter. I decided to wait because I wanted to learn as much as I could. I wanted to reflect on my journey. As I have learned so much about the care the Earth needs now, I find it ironic… I waited, and that is the deadliest thing we can do with our planet now.

For those of you reading this in the future, I hope you didn’t wait. I hope you didn’t wait to prove the naysayers wrong. I hope you didn’t wait for the planet to “heal itself.” If you did… well I guess it’s too late now.

“I hope but that’s as much as I can do,” I used to say this statement. This statement is a vice on our society. I’ve learned that one person can do so much. So, to you people of the world now, kids, woman, and man. I’m not telling you to stop hoping, I’m telling you to start caring, I’m telling you to do the simple act of healing your home.

The Earth is sick, but she will get better. I only hope we can be here to see it and be the ones who helped heal her. I hope we can say that we fixed our mistakes, I know I did my part and my family will have done theirs, but I won’t stop sharing my voice.

I speak to those who don’t want to change their habits. You sit on your throne of infectivity, littering your mind and your families, spreading your illness to your own land, your own home. Step down from your false throne and bend your knee to Earth, the rightful Queen.

You see her suffering, we all do. We watch, we follow, and we continue to listen to those who tear the trees from the Earth to make those small rectangle pieces of paper. Those pieces of paper that allow us to live comfortably, they give us food and water. We can’t live without them, can we? The simple answer is no. What can we do? We can stop holding our time (money) to a higher and more important position than we do our own environment.

How? It’s simple. Start voting for policy towards a greener environment, use less single use plastics, don’t litter, support systems for sustainability, drive less, and use solar. You’re not alone. If you wish to continue to be a sheep, join our herd, a new family, soon it will be larger than the one you’ve been blindly following. Your new herd, no, your new family, will lead you, open your eyes, and will make you a teacher, a leader to your own families. We will care for you as you care for your home, your Earth.

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

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.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

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.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.
