Hello future people,

I am sorry we are not doing enough to move towards green energy. It is unfortunate that we have to fight for clean water, greenspace, basic housing and clean environments. Greed has moved humans towards our doom. I have done much to move towards being green. In little ways I have tried to impact my carbon footprint. I use bamboo toothbrushes, I shop local and organic, I drive as little as I can and I take action in green bills and laws. However, it always seems no matter the march or the vote I take on my ballot, someone with a bigger wallet buys the vote. We still suffer from those who deny climate change. I see the greed of Monsanto, the oil and other powerful companies.  We see the struggles of Standing Rock and the damage done to Puerto Rico, yet we deny our earth is sick. I have little hope for what change we have done by your time. I am unsure if we have created better ways to get our energy or if we have moved to becoming a more sustainable world. I promise you I will continue to fight even when I am tired and I feel as though there is no point.

“We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

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.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

To my grandchildren,

With this letter I renew my promise to act in an ethic and moral way and to try to help other people to understand this problem.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.
