Dear Emma,

You think a lot about how individual acts and lifestyle changes are necessary for people to understand what is they are truly impacting. Research and volunteering can help you to make more positive impacts on the environment, while abandoning old habits that are detrimental to our ecosystem. You want to live waste free, but you can’t convince those around you that it’s possible. It’s the hypocrisy of humanity, but today it’s possible. One thing to remember is that you’ve adopted a way to divert food waste from the landfill and prevent climate change, but what about food packaging! You need to eat more fresh food, not just to avoid food packaging, but also to benefit your health! Another really important part of the environment is education; so many people live their life as if the Earth is disposable, but it’s so much more than that, and since you know and are continuing to lean more and more about the reality of the environment, you can help in bringing awareness. Today, your promise is to prevent waste, promote education, stay healthy, and live sustainably.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

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 Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

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.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
