Dory, my love

It’s 2017 now and you will be almost my age now when you read this. You know my fears for the future. I hope we have managed to avert David King’s ‘catastrophic’ climate change – and all the other pitfalls we have set ourselves up for – nuclear leaks, biodiversity loss, resource depletion etc. All I can say is that I tried – I have been giving the talks for a year now. My generation can only offer its apologies – how have we stayed so ignorant for so long? Too many answers to that. I hope you too can say that you have done your best to leave this planet in a better state than you found it – I’m sure you will. I hope I am there in 2050 to read this with you but if not, always know how much you were loved.

Your mum – Nikki XXX

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Leo,

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

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

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

 

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.

 

Son,

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

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

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

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.
