To my future children,

Today, I am writing to you about the climate. The world is in a horrible state and the president the nation elected believes global warming and climate change is a hoaxes. There is wildfires on both ends California and other places are flooding. India air quality has passed hazardous levels. I am currently taking a climate change class in college and I have learned that if the world (especially the United States) do not take action now you might not be able to experience snow or other amazing things I was privileged to grow up with. You already probably reading about this in your textbooks or laugh about what this nations thoughts were.

I hope you get to experience snow and see the animals I grew up seeing and have the Amazon Rainforest. I hope that what the generations before me decided to ignore, your generation and future generations not ignore. I hope you get to experience seasons and get to breathe fresh air. I hope the mission of so many people as Greta Thunberg, come true.

I do not know what the future holds, but I am doing my part in making sure the people I vote for take this world as serious as this climate change is doing. I am trying to lower the levels of energy we use in the household, but it sometimes is hard when your aunt is so stubborn. They say it takes a village to raise children, well it will take the effort of the whole world to be able to improve our living arrangements for now and the future. Please take care of Mother Earth as I try today and tomorrow and hopefully you and your generation in the future.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear future generations,

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

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
