To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

You are my heart. You are my everything. I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you. I want you to grow up in a safe, clean, and beautiful world. I want you to play carefree, explore without worry, and immerse yourself into the world without reservation. I want to continue to see your eyes sparkle with wonder, your minds alight with amazement, and your smiles gleam at the sheer beauty of our surroundings.

I want the very best for you and I will work hard to ensure that all your dreams come true. I will strive to be an advocate for clean air and clean resources so that you will always have clean air to breathe. I will support our local businesses and farmers so that you understand the importance of sustainable living. I will maintain our vegetable gardens and teach you the value of clean eating. I will continue to reuse and recycle so that you understand the importance of using our resources wisely. I will continue to educate you and all the young children I teach about loving and respecting our environment. I will do everything in my power to make this a better world for you. I promise to always love and protect you.

It is a gift and privilege to be your Mommy. I love you.

Love Always,
Mama

More Messages to the Future

 

To my grandchildren,

With this letter I renew my promise to act in an ethic and moral way and to try to help other people to understand this problem.

 

Dear future self,

I really hope that more people learn the importance of how our daily actions can affect the world in our future.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

To the future generation:

No voice is too small to be heard. Every action counts.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

Dear San Bernardino Nat’l Forest Bears,

I’ll keep the trees on my property so you have a place to hide and climb.

 

Dear Future,

The beauty and grace that still prevails in our world is my inspiration to bring about change.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Future,

I hope my grandchildren are living in a better and healthier Earth.

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you’re still conscious of our changing climate.
