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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

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.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
