To my Grandchildren,

One of my happiest memories is of seeing your parents as children, running through the golden hills near our home.  My heart would leap with joy as I saw them vigorously playing and developing physical and mental skills.
Dearly hoping that you too will be able to run and play without fear of air pollution clogging your lungs, and hoping that you will be able to drink water which does not have to be boiled and bottled, and that you will eat wholesome foods safe from pesticides and additives that compromise health and vitality, hoping all that, I have spent most of my “discretionary” time in efforts to support environmental and political policies that will protect you.
As I became an “Elder”, I decided to use my years in partnership with other Elders who were called, like I was, to give our voices and committed actions to preserving a livable environment for present and future generations in our only magnificently beautiful planet.
May you thrive, enjoy and, when ready, take on the mantle we entrust to you to carry forward for your grandchildren and all the world’s children.
Ever,
Your Grandma

More Messages to the Future

 

My dearest daughter,

But, my dear, we do not retreat when times get tough; in this family, we fight relentlessly for what is right.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

One reason it took awhile to write my thoughts here is that I don’t feel that I am being proactive in the struggle to affect climate change. Yet, just thinking about this task over the past several days, has motivated me to shut off more lights, walk instead of jump in the car for a very short trip, and buy more locally.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

To My Niece,

I am optimistic that the environment in which you grow up with will be something joyous and full of solar panels!

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear anyone enduring environmental hardships,

We are all impacted by the growing concern of climate change and I believe that it has the potential to be a uniting factor for self-preservation and global unity rather than a force of destruction and war.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to educate others TODAY.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
