To the dreamers of tomorrow,

Whenever I consider the future of our planet, I cannot imagine the hardships that your generation will bear. Each day, I see the consequences of our collective action affecting the natural rhythms of the world around me. The animals are confused, the people are confused and answers seem hard to come by.

In all of this confusion, it will be easy to blame the adults around you. Your resentment is justified. In many ways, they sold your future for their own fleeting comfort years ago. I understand your anger.

However, I ask you here to check your resentment and not live from a place of hostility toward the previous generations. Instead, I implore you to look within yourself and try to find meaning and fulfillment in the challenges that present themselves to you each day. This can be almost impossibly hard to find among adults who don’t seem to have a clue what is going on. Yet I encourage you to ask questions and trust your own observations.

In an age of confusion, I encourage you to turn to the timeless wisdom of nature. It can be hard to separate yourself from whatever culture in which you live, yet you are part of an ancient lineage that spans millennia. Deeply rooted within you, you have a connection to the world around you that many previous generations have neglected or written off. Trust it. Spend time in nature’s forests, mountains, and oceans. These experiences will teach you things about life beyond your wildest imagination.

Good luck in whatever the future may bring and know there have been others who, like you, dream.

-Tyler Allen

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

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 grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
