To my children,

The current date is November 20, 2020. The state of the earth that I am currently living in is concerning in many ways. There have been many forest fires in the past couple of months that have been affecting the air quality, ice is melting due to an increase in temperature resulting in higher levels of water, and deforestation is at an all-time high. I am concerned about the future because if we continue to live the way we have been living I am afraid that there will no longer be earth to live in. A change must happen if we want to change things around and make a positive impact on the earth. Climate change is real and has been observed for the longest time but it is hard to address the topic when the current president Donald Trump does not believe in it. The fight against climate change will be a hard one but won’t be impossible if people want to make a difference. Things I can do to make the world a better place is convincing my family to invest in solar panels, converting lightbulbs to LED’s, recycle things around the house(plastic/clothes), and limit the use of electricity. There is a lot more that could be done to save the earth and people need to play their part if they want to improve climate change.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Birds,

will continue championing land preservation and the restoration of woodland, prairie and wetland habitats. I will not stop advocating for “bird friendly” legislation to make cities safer for your passage.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.
