Dear children,

Global warming is real and we’ve seen the effects of it through aggressive natural disasters and sea level rise. It is too bad that we currently have a president who refuses to take a look at the science and see that his ignorance is just allowing for further destruction. I am well aware of climate change, and I promise that I will spread this knowledge to people who are not as aware. Knowledge is so powerful because it causes one to step back and see things for how they really are, which then leads to action. I make sure to tell my parents all about global warming, which it has caused them to switch over to a diet that consists of chicken and turkey over beef. I will also be more aware of the carbon footprint that I leave by eating less beef and finding more efficient ways of transportation. Hopefully, we can all come together so that you are still able to visit the beautiful coasts of somewhere like Florida or witness a giant glacier in Alaska.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Gabriel,

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

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.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.
