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 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.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

To the Future Generations,

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 will opt up to deep green

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
