My dearest daughter,

Hi love, it’s your mama when I was about your age. I’m writing to you in the hopes that my hopes for your future have become a reality. You know I always say “Put your good thoughts into the universe and fate will take care of the rest” and that is what I am doing right now. Our world is on a terrible path right now and I hope that writing to you will add to my efforts to try and make this world a better place for you. Climate change is such a prominent issue in society right now and, believe it or not, some people are still denying it (I know, what weirdos would deny scientific facts? but it’s happening). Global temperatures and sea levels are rising, the polar ice caps are melting, and forests are being destroyed so much faster than I could have ever imagined. So many species that you and I will never get the chance to see are going extinct before anyone gets the chance to really study them. It’s infuriating and heartbreaking at the same time. But, my dear, we do not retreat when times get tough; in this family, we fight relentlessly for what is right. Right now, how my friends and I treat our world will determine how it will be for you. I promise I will do everything in my power to save the planet for you. Learning about conservation, climate change, and sustainability is one of the first steps I have taken. With this knowledge, the next steps are action. Recycling, using solar power and buying sustainable products are all practices I have taken up, but I know there is more to be done. I promise to make the best choices for your future, both major life decisions and day-to-day choices. You and your generation deserve the same, if not better, planet my generation has and I will not stop fighting until the decline of planet ceases.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

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 will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
