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!

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
