To the future,

It is currently April 2018. When I think of the future of our planet, I like to be hopeful. I am hoping the generations ahead do not have to suffer from the consequences of past generations. This is a difficult concept to grasp because we can already see great damage that has been done to our planet. It’s no secret that people tend to take advantage of the planet we live in because it won’t matter to them what happens in the future.

Today, we currently have President Donald Trump in office who does not believe in climate change. A person like him has a lot of power in influencing people. This is why I believe educating the youth is so important. Education is one of the most valuable resources that we can give to the next generation. Educating them on how to treat our planet and what they can do to help will make a change on how the future will turn out.

I hope in the future we are able to take advantage of the resources that we have. Right now in 2018, we have incredible amounts of technology and it will only become more advanced in the future. By then I am hoping we have found ways to help preserve our environment and animals and keep its people healthy.

I wish a safe and clean planet for your future. I hope you are able to do things that we are able to do today. I hope there are still animals that are around today. And lastly, I hope we are able to keep sustainability not only in the environment, but also economically and socially.

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

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 Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
