To My Children,

Dear Future Children,

I am 15 years old now and writing you this letter after my sister, your Aunt, sent me a link. I am writing this to you, just as a nice memory of what life used to look like. We live in a time of terrorism but also innovation now, and I hope for you that you don’t have to live your childhood in the fear of a bomb in the metro etc. I hope for you that you grow up in a world that knows peace and collaboration. I will do everything in my power to do that for you.

Since the Industrial Revolution we have been thinking of expansion and always wanting to make this bigger – the bigger the better. I wish for you that you know better, sometimes smaller is smarter. Efficiency is key!

Its the year 2030/2050 and I am either 30 or 50…haha… so damn old!

Anyway all I want you to know is that I wish the world for you and not only do I wish it, but I will work hard for it. I want you to know that I will try my best to raise you into the best human beings that you can possibly be. My goal as a parent is not to make the perfect child, my goal is to make a child who feels perfectly happy in their own skin. I want to raise you as educated,international, conscious people, who knows I might be raising the leaders of tomorrow (no pressure).

That’s it from me,

love,

Leoni

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
