Dear Future Earth,

Dear future earth, how are doing?

I hope your doing a lot better then you are now. I hope human beings see the harm they are causing you and that if they don’t change one day there will no longer be a you. I hope that you are once again filled with beautiful forests, diverse wild life, and clean crisp air.

As of the moment I’m enjoying the time I have with you and exploring all the beauty you have to offer. While writing this letter I’m bobbing to Bruno Mars’s 24K Magic, amazing song really, but not as amazing as you. Corny right?

Now when it comes to writing and expressing my thoughts I’m not the best and you can ask my college profs about that. But I hope you are healthy and happy and providing a safe home for any family members that I have in the future.

I sincerely apologize for all the pain we have caused you in the years that I am writing this. But as a species that has come from you, I hope that we as a species have realized how much we need you to live a healthy life. Well, this is as far as I thought I could write, so imma go now.

Stay Safe, my home.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

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.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.
