To the future generation:

I’m 22 years old and about to graduate from college. It’s been a long journey and I have no idea how it’s going to go from here on out.

There are many changes happening in the world around us. It’s a confusing time because our president and his administration believe that climate change is a hoax, although we all know that is not. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise that will help us come together to make a change because humanity is growing farther apart.

The world is cold but you can help make it better again. Love yourself, love those around you, love the Earth; it’s the only one we have. Stop worrying about things you think are beyond your control and start doing something about them. No voice is too small to be heard. Every action counts. Change starts slowly but it accelerates the more you believe in it and help drive it with your passion. You CAN make the world a better place. Never stop believing in yourself.

I promise I will do everything I can to pass a world on to you that you can live in without fear and with as few problems as humanly possible.

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go DEEP GREEN

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Dear son,

Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.

 

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.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
