To my future children,

It’s your mom here. I’d just like to say that I hope I have raised you as little human beings who understand the importance of respecting our beautiful planet. I will take you to visit national parks and take you camping and instill in you an appreciation for nature. I will also encourage you to use water wisely and teach you to enjoy yummy healthy foods that are sustainably grown.

I wish that first each person loves to learn their own selves. Second, I wish that by learning to love ourselves we can learn to love and accept one another. Third, I wish that once we learn to love our own selves and then we learn to love and accept each other that we can learn to love the planet that we are fortunate enough to live on. I will teach you to love yourself, to love others, and to love our earth.

We will recycle and do lots of DIY crafts! I love you my little peoples. <3

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

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 Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

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.
