To My Grandchildren,

It is currently 10:56 on September 29,2019. I’m simply on my Apple computer doing homework for French class. I have no clue when or where you will read this, but I sure do hope you will obtain this letter. I’m writing to you because our current world’s health is in danger. Millions and millions of people are oblivious with what is going on: the earth is heating up. I’m sure you already know or will eventually learn why our earth is rapidly growing hotter, but regardless it is a major issue. I want you to know that I do everything in my will to prevent my own carbon footprint (how much I personally contribute to global warming) from expanding. I never leave the water running, always turn my lights off when not using them, and always recycle properly. I wish for you to do the same and to spread those ideas to your friends, peers, and the rest of our family. I hope one day when I’m old and grey we can read this letter together, and admire the changes our population has implemented in our society. I hope we can breathe incredibly fresh air, and not worry about wearing masks when we walk outside. I know we will be okay, and I cannot wait to meet you. I love you.

Sincerely,

Will Rickert

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

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 Owen and Vivian,

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

 

To all the people here on earth,

Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear fellow human,

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

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
