To my descendants,

I’m writing to you from 2019. It’s scary right now, kids!  Developed nations aren’t doing enough to combat climate change. It’s bad news left & right. I want you to have a world with clean water, clean air, biodiversity, community health, and the beauty of the natural world. I personally need to do more and as I learn more about what I can do, I promise, I will.

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

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.
