Dear future cayla,

Dear Cayla, I hope all is well in the future! Your 16 years old writing this and I would love to know what you have accomplished. Im sure many things have changed and you’ve run into many obstacles. what job did you end up pursuing? Did you ever create your own practice and become a psychiatrist? Did you become a teacher like you always wanted too? did you become an actor or director? How are the twins, mom, dad, hannah.. maybe abuelo and abuela? Right now is Corona virus time and the elections are coming up. Do yall still wear mask? And how is the world right now? Did you find yourself a husband and how many kids do you have!? I wonder if I really am going to have six kids like I always said I would. How is trini? Do you even talk to the girls like Leyla and Bella? I doubt it but I truly hope so. This is crazy that im writing this letter to my self 30 years from now cause i know so much has changed. Like im just sitting on my bed on ft with trini doing this for a club. oh god i do not want to  grow old. I really hope this finds you in the future I LOVE YOU.

Climate change is not doing so well in America. I really hope by the time this letter finds you our world is not dead and you have done things to help. climate change right now consist of more frequent flooding in the central US, a longer and more costly wildfire season in California, and droughts across the Great Plains, temperatures are rising, rainfall patterns are shifting, glaciers and snow are melting and the global mean sea level is rising. To help reduce climate change, we must reduce or prevent the emissions linked to human activities. I have never been one involved in helping to reduce climate change, but our world needs it more then ever right now. Some things we can do to help climate change include, powering your home with renewable energy, invest in energy efficient appliances, reduce water waste, pull the plugs, shrink your carbon profile, and much more. I promise that I will do anything in my power to tell my family and friends about this issue. I will make sure they are informed and start taking the necessary precautions to save our world and our future!

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

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 residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

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 I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

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.
