To the wonder,

Dear Tomorrow,

We should not have squandered the now at the expense of the future. We should have been an Us, not an I. Forgive me for not being grateful more often, not expressing more vividly how astounded I am by the splendor of time. Time gives the web of life so many dimensions of color and shape, never singular, always woven into magnificent connections that have time and you tomorrow threading them together. Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come. With my devoted passion to preserve tomorrow so others may look on and wonder, I bow to you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
