To the future,

You might be wondering why didn’t the generations before try to fix our planet? Truth is, we tried. Or at least some of us did. And you might want to sit around blaming the generations before for this mess, that’s not going to help. You have to make your voice herd, whether it takes making a few more “Save the planet” Instagram’s or Facebook pages, or starting peaceful protests, or having people signing petitions. Going around the country trying to get you voice herd.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.
