To Future Generations,

I apologize for the state my generation has left the planet Earth in but who knows we may have inhabited Mars by now. Maybe you guys start to reverse the effects that you were left in. Maybe there is fly cars that will save the planet or it will be dug further into the ground hopefully not. 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 one for me.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

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.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
