To My Child,

The year is 2018, and I am scared. As I hope to teach you at an early age, it’s okay to feel scared. The truth is, our planet’s current state is scary — almost as scary as it will be if humans continue to live the way we do now.

Yes, climate change is frightening; however, it is this very fear that inspired me to write this letter to you. This fear motivates me to make sustainable lifestyle choices and never forget about how my individual actions help and/or harm the environment. I crave to save Earth because you deserve to thrive in a safe world.

I want the air you breathe to be the cleanest air on earth, not saturated in toxins. I want the lakes you swim in to be the cleanest water on earth, not polluted with plastic. For these reasons, I promise to do all that I can — from feeding you plant-based meals to teaching you what to throw in the compost bin — to keep our planet safe. Because a healthy world fosters a healthy child, and your health is my main concern.

With love and optimism,

Your Mother

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

To all the people here on earth,

Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

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.

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
