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.

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

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.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.
