To my future Family,

It has become increasingly apparent now that the world in which we live has become tired and unable to sustain the demands and needs of humanity. In my lifetime I have come to understand that the concept of pillaging and misusing of valuable natural resources has been normalized. The governments which lead our world today have decided to turn their back on the generation of tomorrow, their policies and actions have demonstrated their indifference to climate change. However, I wanted you to know I’m trying my best to do my part, to become an active promoter of our planet’s health. I wanted to pledge a promise to you, and that is that I will from this day forward, attempt to live a lifestyle that is cognizant of the health of our planet.  And that I will in my own way make as many individuals liable for their contributions to our planets health, whether good or bad. With a lot of hope, I wish that our world is saved and continuously nurtured in your lifetime. And that by  the time that  you reach my age you are able to enjoy this earth in the ways that I did.

-KEVIN GAYTAN

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

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 Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Daughter,

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

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

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

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
