To the next generation,

We are living in precarious times. Here in Alaska our glaciers are melting. The frozen tundra is melting making many buildings sink or fall off of cliffs and are washed away by a river or the sea. Temperatures are up causing this. Fish are more rare. Polar bears are suffering and dying. The state is drying out due to less snow and rain. How can President Trump say there is no global warming. He is undermining the hard won points of earlier times. Please help. Do whatever you can to stop this trend.

More Messages to the Future

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.

 

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.
