To my future children,

I hope a lot of things for you. There are many problems in this world, but that does not mean that you have any less of a right to be here. I currently live in an age full of hatred, violence, and with a dying planet. I hope that you do not have to face the same problems that I do on a daily basis. I hope that you are living in a world where having breathing problems is not associated with an early childhood death. I hope that you are healthy enough to live past adolescence and can be a part of creating some good in the world. At the end of the day I hope that you are happy and healthy. It is something that is taken for granted and something I hope you cherish. Our planet is dying and I hope that you have an opportunity to take in all of the beauty it has to offer.

More Messages to the Future

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a 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.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

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.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.
