Dear Future Earth,

I look at you and thank you for all that you offer me. I look at the sky and the ocean and think about the endlessness that’s behind it. I think about the great memories I’ve experienced living on you. Living on a planet with miles and miles of new land, new cultures, new people, and new inventions is a gift that many people seem to take advantage of. Many look at you and destroy you in a heartbeat, but I look at you and take it all in and breathe you in. The way your rivers run and how your waves crash on the sand, the sound of raindrops hitting the concrete and the after smell it brings the air, the forests that seem to be endless and dark at night and the way you bring happiness to everyone when you shine bright with green hills and cool winds that blow through in the summer. I thank you for all the beauty you bring and I wish for you to stay this way for eternity. I hope future generations take care of you and look at you the way I look at you. Don’t leave us, don’t die out because of global warming, don’t turn brown because of droughts, don’t crumble because of earthquakes, don’t drown because of tsunamis and don’t be heartbroken when people hate you because they’re only mad at themselves. Take all your beauty and make it better where people look at you and smile, smile because they’re grateful they live on a beautiful planet like you. Dear future generations, take care of the earth, she’s one of a kind.

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Querida Emanoely,

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

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

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.

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.
