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 Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

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.

 

Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!

Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
