To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

Dear Tomorrow, 20th April 2020…………

To my Amazingly Wonderful, Beautiful, Considerate and Un-Conditionally Cherished and Loved Children, I wonder what we all look like since it is 2050. Jordyn, you are the exact same age as me at this moment, 46 years-old! Lauryn, you are getting up there at (almost) 44 Years-Old and My Son, the cute and determined, Braedyn, you are 40 years-old!

I must admit right off the rip, this is a task that is slightly more difficult to write than I had expected. It is something that has more importance and true meaning than just the words themselves however, so for that reason I am putting my all into this letter. It is April 2oth, 2020, but by the time you read this, it will be the year 2050 and this letters context will undoubtedly have a more complicated presence in your communities and in ALL the Earth’s populace.

The issue of Climate Change is something you are very familiar with. It headlines the News daily and we are seeing real effects all around us. The issue is real, and it is here to stay. I can only say to you three, and to all of Humanity that I, for one, am sorry. I am sorry that I did not do more to help. I am sorry that I was not more involved with the issue. I am sorry that the environmental catastrophe and all the strife that is attached, which was undeniably created by my Generation and those before mine, has been thrust upon you. SO…..Jordyn, Lauryn and Braedyn Johnson,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way. Ionically, the one bright spot that I can see, is that it is falling into your hands. I have never known such capable, empathetic, smart and motivated people such as yourselves and your peers. For that, I am grateful. I look forward to the lessons you will teach me on living a more sustainable lifestyle.

The World is still spinning on its axis, and the sky is still pale blue. But there are more clouds that frequent our horizon. And the water rises the winds prevail what is true?

It is your smiles that light my world. It is your hearts that collectively motivate my own heart to beat.

Thank-You for being the ones who will fix this terrible mess.

P.S. I Love you more.

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

 

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,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
