To my future children and grandchildren,

I hope that the world you see before you is still a world filled with the beauty and wonders of nature. I hope that there is enough greenery and foliage to captivate you while you daydream about your own future. I hope that there is a kind and loving population that cares for the Earth enough to preserve it, rather than exploit it. I hope that you can still enjoy warm days playing outside without having to wear a mask. I hope that you can bundle up in the middle of October instead of wondering why it’s so warm in the fall. I hope that you and your peers can envision a future that is even more beautiful than the world in front of your eyes.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

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.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.
