My Dear Children,

If you’re reading this, you are lucky. Lucky for the most part, to be healthy and alive on this planet. I just wanted to let you know that this letter is being written in the month of April 2019. Winter came late this year and is taking longer to go away. We also have had 3 Christmas holidays without snow. Last summer while I was working, we had multiple heat waves and it was unbearable to go outside and even inhale the air because it was so humid. You all may wonder what I’m trying to get at here, but…kids…I want to let you all know that at this exact moment the world is in danger. The climate is changing rapidly not just because of us humans but a good percentage of us are the cause of this mess. We human beings are important representations of the rest of the world and many of us pollute and don’t take enough care of the planet. I know I may have told you this a hundred times, but this letter is important and I want you to pass it on to your children and to theirs. There are simple tasks we can do to keep the earth green and beautiful. Please buy less plastic, recycle and don’t throw recyclables into the garbage. Drive at a slower speed to keep fewer levels of Carbon Dioxide in the air, or even invest in an electric car if you can afford it. Pick up garbage that you see laying anywhere. These little things can do so much. Not just doing but speaking and telling people how you feel about the climate is the most important part, because you may never be alone. Just remember, that you represent everyone else around you…I will do better and I want you both to do the same. I want you both to go to college, university and then get yourself your own home and family and most importantly… I want you to live…I love all very much…and if for some reason you don’t receive this letter, I just wanted to say…I’m sorry for letting you down.

Love, Mom.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

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.

 

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 Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

AMORI MIEI EMMA DOMINGA E MAMMA AURELIE

Mamma e Papà cercano insieme sempre di darti il meglio però anche tu dovrai fare la tua parte nel mondo.

 

Dear Lincoln,

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.
