To Future Generations,

I apologize for the state my generation has left the planet Earth, but who knows we may have inhabited Mars by now. Maybe you guys start to reverse the effects that you were left. Maybe there are flying cars that will save the planet or will it be dug further into the ground? hopefully not. A word of advice I can give you though is definitely if you’re gonna play video games you have to play Pokemon and life advice is “don’t do drugs”. That is a big piece of advice from me.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Future,

I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.

 

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

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.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

To my child,

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

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
