To my children,

I hope you are doing well and that the future world is in a much better state than it is now. I am writing to you as a college student at the University of Vermont. I’m currently a freshman, and I’ve been here for just over a month now. UVM puts a great focus on climate issues and ensuring a brighter future for ourselves and our future generations. This is something I had not thought a lot about before coming here and now see is a much more significant issue than I previously thought. People need to make serious changes, and soon if we want to see progress in how the world is functioning. I hope for all of our sakes, and your future children, that by the time you are reading this, we have made some progress. I wish you the best of luck, and you see much success in your future.

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

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?
