To Whom it May Concern,

It is 2017 and we have a climate change denier as president. Our government actively removed information regarding the changing climate and how seriously it affects all of us on earth, our water, our food, our natural resources are all at greater risk than ever before. As our population grows we must make more from our ever depleting resources. I am sad to say I cannot guarantee the world will look the same for you as it did for me, what treasures will be lost between now and then I cannot say for certain. I hope by the time this reaches you climate change and it’s solutions will become a mainstream topic. If not for the sake of maintaining this earth than for the immediate danger it poses. I hope climate change has not been pushed under the rug. I promise you between now and then I will be critical of myself and my actions, critical of the behaviors and practices of the companies I choose to support and critical of my government, demanding through personal and community political action that they hold us accountable as a nation of people and corporations. I will take what I have learned so far and apply it to my life and the choices I make and seek out new knowledge and solutions and do what I can to share this knowledge with others. While my change may only be individual I know small changes can make a difference and my dollars carry weight. I will, along with many others continue to be thoughtful and critical regarding our world and always act with the future in mind. We make up a growing body of concerned citizens looking for avenues to voice our concerns, develop sustainable practices and spend our dollars responsibly. I hope this action combined with the many other efforts underway and even the efforts that have not been imagined yet help retain some of the beauty I have enjoyed for you to see for yourself.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

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.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!
