To the Future Generations,

With the recent election of Trump and the immoral policy changes he intends to enact, I’m angry and ashamed to be represented by the current U.S. government. His complete denial of the existence of climate change and his lack of support for programs like the EPA has made me very stressed and discouraged about our country’s future environmental policies. In fact, this entire presidency has really negated my view of the future of this country. Currently, I am enrolled in an Intro to Sustainability class and have met so many young people like me who want to make a difference for the environment and help save the planet! It really has calmed my fears and pushed me to really do something to spread awareness about our climate issues. As of recent, I’ve been working with so many friends to start something wonderful to enact change and help spread sustainable practices to all people. That has given me hope. I know that the world is changing so rapidly in both the environment and societally, that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but remember that change is slow and hard to enact.

I hope the world is still a beautiful place by the time you get to live in it, and I’m sorry if it is not because of our slow realization of ruin. I want you to know that people cared and are learning to change, and are desperately trying to preserve the earth. If something similar is happening in your time, fight for what you believe in and never stop. Always take a stand, like I said the world is moving so quickly that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but slow down and make your mark. If you truly believe your cause is worth it, do it.  Take a stand, never back down.

Best,  2017

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

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 2050,

Our planet is crazy. I pledge to be an innovator to make sustainable living real.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
