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

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.
