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 Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
