To Those in the Future,

It’s 2020 and a lot of things are going on, there is a pandemic. Many people might not be thinking about it right now, and many think it’s not a big deal, but the changing climate is a HUGE deal. If we don’t do something soon to change the way we are, then we are jeopardizing the future and who knows what earth is going to be like in 2050. All I ever wanted was a healthy planet to live on, with no pollution making it harder to breathe. I want to be able to live a life that isn’t filled with future hardships and I want my future children to live in a world that is habitable.

What I’m asking you shouldn’t be hard to consider. Assuming that those close to you are your # 1 priority, do us a simple favor. Please use the metal straw buried in your bookbag or bring that reusable bag to the grocery store. It’s a SMALL step in changing our daily lives, but I guarantee that it will work out in the long run.

I wish you all a healthy, safe, and clean world. Hopefully, we were able to turn things around in time.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

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.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
