The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

Dear child,

You will be 37 now. I hope I’m still around for you. If I am, I will be 64. I hope the world has learned to take it easy. It’s doing everything but that as I write this. You know all about it. The take make waste nonsense. There seems to be no end to the madness of it all. I hope the world has learned how to ‘do nothing’. If I say this now people will think I’m being lazy. They will think I want the government to give me stuff for free. I hope the world has moved on from all that. You know you don’t need anything to be happy. To be fulfilled. I always knew you would make it. And because I knew that, I knew that the world would make it too. I hope you are happy and well. I hope all your friends are happy and well. How is your little brother? He will be 34. These days he is hard to control. I hope he is a bit more tame but not too much. He loves you more than anything else in the world. He kisses you to sleep every night. You kick him all night long and take the blanket from him. He cuddles up next to you. My eyes are welling up. I love you so much. You make the world more beautiful by being in it. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. And don’t give in to the temptations of mediocrity just so you can fit in. You have always fit in. Since the day you were born. I would know. I was there. Your mother put you on her breasts and you drew first milk with your eyes closed. You were a natural. You were amazing at everything you wanted to do. You loved people for who they were. You cried for people’s pain. You laughed with them. The world just went and got a little lost and you did all you could to stay sane. Stay beautiful. Stay human. Yes we humans have had it rough in the past. Killing off our cousin species and most of the animals. But you knew there was more to being human than the sum total of the past. You were and still are the beginning of beginnings. The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!

Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

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.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
