Dearest children and grandchildren,

I will continue to plant trees and bushes and not use chemicals as pesticides or fertilizers; recycle and repair; use water judiciously and reverently; and support improvements in use of our resources as new information is available.  This is done with love and hope.   Grandma Lang

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

My grandchildren,

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

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

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.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear Tara,

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

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
