Dear Future Kids of America,

I am sorry that you had to grow up in a world where politics take precedence over every little thing that happens. Everything in the media, be it movies or even simple things, always have to have some sort of political statement attached to it. I am sorry you have to grow up in a world where people have so much freedom that all they can do is complain about their own lives. I am sorry that you have to live in a world where the school system tricks you into thinking that you’re exercising creativity and individuality and learning, but in reality you’re being slumped into a robotic-like trance where there’s no escape until you graduate. I am sorry that you live in a world where there’s constant fighting over stupid things, that people have stopped caring about each other and they have to point the finger at someone other than themselves. I am sorry that as you grow up, you’ll realize that once all the adults retire, it will be your job to fix the mistakes they made. I am sorry you were born into a world where the concept of peace in and of itself is a lie, and that war still happens somewhere. I am sorry that things got like this, where in the 80s and 90s, things weren’t perfect either, far from it, but they weren’t absolutely out of control. The world is in your hands, and the ones who played a part in getting things to be this way will eventually give the safety and protection of our world to you.

I am sorry.

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.

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you got your dream job of using your business degree to reduce co2 emissions and promote sustainable energy.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
