Dear world,

I am sorry we didn’t take better care of you. I am sorry that we put our wants rather than our needs before you. That millions of pieces of plastic float in the ocean and will never full be removed.

I am sorry that because of our actions the world is hotter than ever. That polar bears are slowly dying because they have no ice to live on. That this beautiful planet is full of trash, smog, and worst of all people who do nothing about it.

I am sorry that we were ungrateful. I am sorry that we ignored your suffering until it was almost to late. But i am even more sorry that we know we are killing you everyday. I am sorry that we actively use plastic despite knowing the damages it’s causing. I am sorry that we make clothes out of plastic. That we wrap our food in plastic. That we do not care enough to do anything about it.

I am sorry that we elected leaders that also do not care. That care more about oil, money, and greed. I am sorry that the United states has a president, as of 2019, that doesn’t believe in basic science. I am sorry that there are people who question climate change on a daily basis because they would rather have money than a planet to live on.

To the world I am sorry.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Son,

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

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
