To my daughter,

We learned about it and knew. Yet production still grew.

The Amazon, the Virunga, they were of the few left with some of the oldest living species on earth. But right now there’s not much I can do.

Their trees come down and with it any bit of human dignity. It is not the fault of the people that do it, but the system which forces them to.

Society has created a way of life which is based off unlimited wants and limited resources, with some getting all that they want at the cost of others never getting what they need. Because of human greed.

But happiness can only be found in other people, not the oil fields or mining mountains. Remember that what makes the world beautiful is not what can be made but who can make it better.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

To My Future Children,

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

dear tomorrow,
