To My Grandchildren,

Hey, I hope that you are a thing and that the world didn’t end before you could exist. The world now is split and not doing everything they can to stop climate change. I promise to cut down my energy consumption and waste output so that one day I can see you come to this world and live through it with out worry of climate change destroying the planet in your lifetime.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear children,

Despite all the difficulties, we are from a family whose principles are honesty and love for others, and that’s what I want to share with you.

 

Dear Great Grandchildren,

If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.
