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 Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

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 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.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.
