Dear Alyssa and Johnny,

Hello little cousins. I hope everything is okay. As of now it does not look like everything will be okay. We are consuming fossil fuels at alarming rates, the streets sometimes look more like dumpsters than a place to walk, and people seem to care more about the green in their pockets rather than the green on the trees. Little do they know the green in their pockets will mean nothing once the green on the earth is no more. I am putting my whole future career into trying to help keep the earth healthy for future generations like you guys. I hope throughout the years I will be able to help you guys learn to appreciate the natural world around you and I know your mom will help teach you as well. There is so much beauty in national parks and green spaces that I got to experience growing up and now I hope those will all still be there for you guys when you are a little bit older. I hope my personal goals of diving in the great barrier reef and studying in the tropical rain forests will have come true, and I hope you guys will still be able to make similar goals.

Love, Cassie

Dear future Michelle,

As consumers, it is our duty to protest and force companies to be greener and avoid environmental damage, whether they are from the food industry or from any other production industry. It’s about time we start thinking greener.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

Dear friends,

We need to rethink our consumption habits in order to reduce the impacts on the environment.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

 

Dear my future loved ones,

I hope that humans can live harmoniously with the earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Anya,

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.
