Dearest Summer,

This is your cousin Mackay on October 30, 2017. Tomorrow I will enjoy a night out with my friends for Halloween and hopefully make memories that I will cherish and weave together to remember my senior year of college. Right now you are 10 years old and I can only hope that you have the same opportunities in your life as I am having in mine, and even if that is not the case then to take advantage of every opportunity you possibly can! In case you were not already aware, humans have impacted the environment in many negative ways (and many positive ways too!! {lets not forget}), and I am currently going to school to study environmental science so that I can share my values and beliefs to encourage others to live as sustainably as possible. To me this means recycling, compositing and getting rid of my ‘trash’ in proper ways so that it can be reused or degrade properly in the environment. To eat as clean as possible because while we are here on this earth, our body is our vessel that allows us to achieve our dreams. I think it is a beautiful thing to be passionate and to stay motivated, and the only way to do that is to do what you enjoy doing! You are a spunky girl, with so much energy that you use to sing on the top of your lungs, play with your siblings, run around doing sports and a big brain to use and impress others 😉 I love you for all that you are and my wish is that you get to enjoy your time on this planet and always stay true to yourself and your beliefs. You can achieve the world so let’s make it so others can experience this mysterious and wondrous place to do the same!

Love always,

Your cousin Mackay <3

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear James,

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

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
