I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

To the future generations,

Around the United States, there are many amazing creations of nature. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park is the most beautiful that I have seen so far. Getting to hike up mountains and to spend a week immersed with nature was a great experience. Everyone should be able to partake in this experience. This park—as with all of them—should be protected at all costs. It is important to have these green spaces incorporated into our lives.

Unfortunately, climate change can change all of this. As the temperature rises and the current climate changes, nature will be compromised. The current ecosystems that are existing, will not be able to survive through higher temperatures or different levels of precipitation. As the natural plant life dies off, the problems will only get worse and the temperatures will continue to rise even further. If it gets much worse, temperatures will not be able to support human life as well. You all are at risk. There needs to be change for the better.

I hope that by now, there are people that possess genuine care for the environment get put into power. As voters, we need to make sure that whoever is being elected has concern for how human-caused climate change is making an impact on the beautiful landscapes of the country. The relationship that humans have with nature should be harmonious. My hope for the future is that all of the future generations are continuing to work towards restoring this relationship.

My promise is to do what I can to raise awareness of the long-term effects of climate change. I want to set up this expectation to spread information for your generation and the ones that follow. Climate change is serious and there needs to be change as soon as possible.

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

AMORI MIEI EMMA DOMINGA E MAMMA AURELIE

Mamma e Papà cercano insieme sempre di darti il meglio però anche tu dovrai fare la tua parte nel mondo.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

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 James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.
