To the future Lilly,

I hope that people finally started understanding how serious the climate crisis is.  I am writing this message in the year 2019 and currently, we only have a few short years before we go into a complete crisis. That is, assuming you don’t consider our current situation already a crisis.  The human race is not only killing itself but other species and the actual earth itself. For many people, the worst thing they can imagine right now is not having the convenience of using a straw or driving five miles to work, and the thought of biking seems ridiculous. I am a problem myself, I enjoy my long hot showers, and sometimes still use single-use plastics. But I am trying, and not everyone can say the same about themselves.

I believe that once we stop being ridiculously greedy about what things we want and how much money we have, and realize that the only reason it matters so fucking much is that we have decided that it matters so fucking much.

I hope that things are on the way to be improved by the time youre reading this, and not on the way to being worse.  I also hope that you got to sail for a long time and continued to really like rock climbing. Do not get stuck in the endless cycle of work. Please go out and explore if possible.

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 future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
