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

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

To my daughter,

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.

 

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 Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

Dear future generations,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.
