To all future generations,

I see people all around me consuming enormous amounts of everything. I too was recently once a mass contributor to living beyond my means. And sadly, I see future generations being failed by our past and current misconceptions. My own family laughs at the concept of global warming. However, despite the laughs I get in what I believe in now, my hopes are that my efforts will make a difference and inspire even just a few to join in. It’s time to educate, change, and walk the walk. This planet and our future is too important to watch slip away.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

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 Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

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.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
