To my future grandchildren,

One of my favorite things about living in San Francisco is the people there. We have a diverse community that promotes tolerance and acceptance. I could not see myself calling anywhere else my home.

California has a history of drought, and global warming plays a heavy part in that. If global warming were to continue, business as usual, our home would not be the same as I remember, and you would not be able to experience it.

I hope that we could manage our impact on climate change, so the beauty of our city can be maintained for centuries.

I promise to take the steps in my life to lower my ecological footprint, and lead through example. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my favorite hidden spots.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
