Caro futuro,

è una sera come tante altre e mi ritrovo qui a pensare come sarai.

Ora ho “solo” 18 anni, ma effettivamente mi sono resa conto che il mondo così non può andare avanti, grazie alla scuola che frequento sto imparando tante cose sull’ambiente che mi circonda e spero di proseguire i miei studi in questo campo.. chissà magari avrò la “fortuna” di assistere e partecipare ad un cambiamento più pulito del mondo.

Mi sentirei un’ipocrita a dire che faccio molto, ma nel mio piccolo ci provo, a differenza di molti ragazzi della mia età.

Non lo so cosa aspettarmi da te, cerco sempre di non crearmi aspettative, godiamoci il momento e facciamo quello che possiamo e se sarà qualcosa di bello, la meraviglia può solo che aumentare.

Oltre ai problemi climatici, decisamente gravi (pensa che questo è l’inverno più secco da non so quanti anni), tutte queste guerre mi preoccupano davvero molto, per non parlare delle discriminazioni.

Spero tanto di ritrovarti “più pulito e pacifico”.

piccoli pensieri di una diciottenne vicentina,

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

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 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 Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.
