To my grandchildren,

Hello,

I’m writing in hopes that I’ve taught you all well. Regardless, I’m assuming it’s gotten hotter in the future and I’m also assuming that (given I’m still around) I’m complaining that it’s too gosh darn hot. At the rate we’re going, I’m expecting the world to be doing pretty poorly by 2050, in regards to environmental concerns. There are people out there today (2020) that are concerned about this, and it’s no small amount. But past generations aren’t too happy about our concern. There’s a lot of politics around climate change and it’s usually not too great (some people don’t even believe that climate is changing!!!), but I’m assuming that hasn’t changed much by 2050 :(. Anyways, I hope that California still has its beauty. I hope that summers are hot, but forgiving. I hope the winters are cool, but not freezing.

Most of all, I just hope you all care about the Earth the way you should.

More Messages to the Future

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
