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 Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

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.

 

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.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

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.
