To My Family,

It is 2019 and climate change, sea level rise, over population, high rates of consumption of natural resources and single use products are major topics of discussion. I have reduced my use of single-use plastics by using silicone, metal and paper straws as a substitution. I have quit buying bottles water and invested in a PURfilter. I am taking small steps in my daily life in an attempt to improve the quality of life for future generations and our Earth. I try to share my opinions and ideas with you all in hopes that you will see the small impact that you can have on reducing the unsustainable ways of the world. I promise to continue taking the small steps that hopefully lead to a big change.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

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.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

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 Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.
