To my family, friends, and generations to come,

We as a species have managed to transform the world in unimaginable ways, and it’s not all good. For the sake of the Earth and all of its inhabitants, we need to preserve the biodiversity and natural wonders, beauties, and landscapes it has to offer. I promise to do my best to ensure that future generations won’t have to fight to be able to care for the Earth. I promise to do everything in my power to promote a culture of wellbeing and environmental nourishment, so that forests, glaciers, and undersea environments; lions, and tigers and polar bears (oh my!) will not be confined to fairy tales and history books.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear… Parents,

Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

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.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

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 future generations,

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

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.
