To My Future Child,

When I tell you that the things you do matter, I mean it. I tell you this because I believe everyone has an obligation in this world to be a steward with the earth. I have raised you and taught you to respect the natural world, and I too hold myself accountable to this expectation.

I am writing to you in a time where the impacts of climate change are becoming worse everyday. Often times I feel trapped as I struggle to understand how our society has reached the state it is in today. All I know is that I must fight for what is left, because I want you to see the beauty the world has to offer.

Not a day goes by that I do not think about what you will be like. I know that there is hope for a better world. We have the technology and the capability to improve our climate crisis. It is complicated and timely, but that does not mean we should give up.

I cannot wait for the day that I can take you hiking through Montana, teach you to ride a bike, and share endless memories with you. I know that you will be my favorite person to adventure with.

Until we meet, I will continue fighting for you and our planet.

Yours truly,

Mom

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

Dear AC,

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
