Future Self,

Know that I tried. Others said it wasn’t real, as they ignored the facts; I heeded the warning, and braced for impact. I protested and boycotted the companies that placed profit above people, but they didn’t care. I wrote Congress, yet they came out of their battles with each other just a little too late. I did what I could, I’m sorry it wasn’t enough.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Tara,

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

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

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 Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.
