To my nieces and nephews,

I want you to know that I tried. I know you are facing the repercussions from my generations and more prominently the generations before me, but I want you to know I am dedicating my career to fixing these issues. Sometimes, you just can’t get enough people to rally around the invisible present.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

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?

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Eleanor,
