To all the children of the future and those who love them,

For years now I’ve been saying to myself – “I really should do something about trying to stop the storm of destruction happening on this planet”. However, I kept putting it off and putting it off until I nearly died twice last year of heart-related issues. Now I am very engaged and active and this is my gift to you. While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.  May this message find you in a good place.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
