Ioanna,

You are only 8 months old but already you are curious about, excited for, amazed by and in charge of the world around you. Every week, I’m startled by how much you understand. I know it won’t be long before you ask me about the planet – how big it is, where it came from, where it ends, and how it works. I won’t have all the answers — I might not even have a tenth of them. But I promise you, we’ll find out together. And when you ask me about what we did about climate change before you were born, I don’t want to disappoint you — because I knew. We knew. I’m ashamed of how we’re managing climate change now, but how about this? If you push me and I push you, we can both make sure that by the time you’re my age, you’re proud to tell your daughter how we fought back together – and did everything we could (and more!) to make the world better for her.

Love you always,
mama

More Messages to the Future

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Hola hij@/ niet@

Quiero contarte que acabo de ver una película que me cambio la vida, me ayudo a comprender tantas cosas y me dejo pensando.
I want to tell you that I just saw a movie that changed my life, it helped me to understand so many things and it left me thinking.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
