I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

Hello spawn,

Little Jordans.. I do this for all of us. I write this in the hopes that we can change the world for you. So that we might leave the world a place where you still desire to be outside. I wish for you to step out into the chill of an autumn night and fear not for breathing deep the chill of the air. I wish for you to wonder at the beauty of the planet, but not lazily as I did, as a participant of your planet. I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you. You and all the good green and living things on this Earth. I promise you darlings it’s most of what matters in life. Your most certainly overbearing already adoring mother; your father too as he’s asleep on my shoulder.

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 Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.
