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 Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

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

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.
