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 Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

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 humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Ellis,

So, dear heart, I am doing everything I can as the situation worsens.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

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 Future Me,

I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.
