To me,

I want to not forget what the Earth was like, how the trees were shaped, what the planet looked like. I want to remember the cold, snowy winters, and the fun, warm filled summers. I hope that the world will still be green, and I hope the icecaps are still there. The world will be much different than when it was then (now). Hopefully civilization still address global warming, even if it is a greater deal now (future). So when I read this, I want you to remember, and don’t forget.

-You

Dear Great Grandchildren,

If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

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

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.
