To My Wonderful Grandchildren,

First off, I just want to say that I love you all so very much. My life was not easy and I worked very hard to make sure I set a humble example for you all. I hope you all do the same for your children and grandchildren to come. As of right now, climate change is continuing to cause mistreatment within our environment, social and cultural barriers and political apprehension. However, in order to make change we must lead by example and realize that “We do not inherit this earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” We must show unselfish concern for the welfare of others. With that in mind, I have taken the initiative to do what I can to prevent environmental havoc on our future by having compassion for our home and taking the time to educate others on doing the same. I pray that you do the same for your children and encourage them to do better than we have. Many people will mock you, but standing up for the truth and what we believe in holds true value. Pay no mind to the ignorance of others because in the end, they will understand when it is too late. This earth is our home, so let’s keep it that way.

Love,

Maliah Kenoly

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

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.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

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.
