To My Beloved Children,

I was thinking about how to give you a better life in the future. I thought of how to get you to a famous school, how to support you do whatever you want, how to bring you a wealthy life. However, the events in 2020 have changed my thought. I found out that all you need is living a healthy life and grow up in a clean environment to enjoy your childhood like what I had.

Let me tell you stories about what is happening around me now. This is the first time I saw big wildfires in California that stole many people’s life, firefighters’ life. This is the first time I saw an orange sky as the end of the world. This is the first time I cried so much when seeing many floods came and drown houses, animals, and everything. This is the first time your grandma told me she is worried if you will grow up without having a real childhood of playing outdoors. We experienced Climate Change has a huge impact on our lives. It is terrible to say that it is getting worse day by day.

Our effort is not enough to stop the negative impact of Greenhouses gases. I’m so sorry that we unintentionally harm the environment and created a huge impact on your generation. I promise that we will try our best to stop what is happening now. I’m not sure how long it will take to get back what we had in the past, but I really hope we can give you all the best. Also, I hope you will know how important of mother nature as well as protect the environment.

I love you from the moon and back.

 

TB

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
