To a better future,

Dear Tomorrow,

Today, like yesterday, reflects a world climate filled with distrust and greed. As a result, our planet suffers the consequences and is dying. Our planet’s climate has turned on us and their is no one to blame but ourselves. We will be the death of our amazing epic wholesome home. I can’t stop thinking about climate change and what comes next. Awareness has only gone so far.

There have always been outdated ideals governing the future of our nation. It feels as though the skeptics of this world are hellbound on disproving the science and facts. Skeptics such as President Donald J. Trump, aren’t just filled with distrust but are also compelled by greed. He chooses to disband all ecological protection policies for nothing more than self interest and wealth. We are doing nothing to make tomorrow a survivable, viable future for us and the next generations.

Despite all of the crumbling circumstances that make up our present, I can’t help but be optimistic. Tomorrow will happen and keep happening for years to come. I know this because I am the next generation. We believe stronger and work harder than those before us to protect those who need help and value fairness and tolerance. Its a long road ahead to make our world a greener place but it will happen. Already, our voices are being heard, for we refuse to be silenced. Our call to action has been declared. We are and continue to be the change; so, don’t worry world, I’ll see you tomorrow.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

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 will opt up to deep green

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
