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

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.

 

Meus filhos,

Espero que vcs tb encontrem ,de alguma forma,um caminho para colaborarem com Nossa Mãe Terra, bjs eternos.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
