To my future Children, family, and the next generation,

First of all HI, I hope humans are behaving better (more accepting, lovable, nicer), that there has not been a third world war and that all of you are okay and happy. Months ago I saw a movie that showed me that people were suffering, it was not like I did not know about climate change but I just put the sad things that worry me in the back of my head and try not to think about it too often. I am currently trying not to do that anymore. I am sorry I am not doing enough for our planet, you could say I am young (I am 15 years old), but it should not be an excuse. Age is not a excuse, you can help the planet, anywhere and anytime. Teachers at my school keep telling us climate change is real, but my classmates laugh and take it as a joke. Climate change it is not a joke, and it is real! One day I heard one of my classmates tell the rest of the class: “The earth is trying to kill us, that is why climate change exists.” But the earth it is not trying to kill us, we are trying to kill her, our home, it is not fair.

I hope we are doing to stop this destruction!

Love, Ale G. M.

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
