I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

Dear Future,

Hi! It’s me..

How are you doing?

One more day before 2020 starts and it occured to me that a lot of things happened this decade. Before ending this year I suggest that I might as well send a message to the future. A warning and a description that we should not forget.

The rapid changes of our world. Specifically our home, the Earth. Glaciers are starting to collapse, the Amazon is burning, even in some parts of Africa are burning. The climate change and as well as the decreasing supply for the future generations. Things are changing and we’re not even that much aware of it. People wont try to even recognize or even to take action as to what should be done. We, the previous, we may seem to know whats happening but wont really care that much. That’s how people as of now. But we are trying. Bit by bit we can save our home. There’s a lot of people who’s helping, influencers and activist are trying to tell and do the things that should be done. While us in our school are segregating biodegradables and plastics. There’s also a new proclamation of the Department of Education that we need to plant trees before we could graduate High School which is nice. People are now trying to act, we need to face the inevitable and take the price.

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

I hope you will do your part.

A well wisher,

-Esi ▷2019

More Messages to the Future

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

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 Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

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