To my future grandchildren,

I just want to start off by saying this: I’m so sorry.

It’s 2019 now and we’re trying our best to right the wrongs of our grandparent’s generation. As of November 25th, greenhouse gas emissions are at it’s highest. The Amazon rainforest is on fire. Venice, Italy is underwater. Koalas are almost extinct. By the time you read this, there will be even more consequences than what we could have predicted.

Please know there are people out here right now championing your future. I’m going to fight for your future. I can only hope you do the same for your grandchildren.

Remember your values. Remember to be kind. Even if there’s nothing else on this planet, kindness will see itself through.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
