Dear Future Generations,

Hopefully, by the time you read this, our world is changed for the better. What started as innocent discoveries of coal, electricity, cars, and much more, have turned into a very dark future of pollution. Our world is slowly crying out for help, it is forever changed. Many are staying silent about climate change, but it needs to be stopped. Although damage has already been done, there are possible solutions. Never give up on our planet, we are nothing without it. Be brave, all are depending on people who are willing to act and speak. Never be silenced by higher powers, every single voice counts. Never lose hope, you are the future. A future that can be filled with a positive change, a change that can save us all. Hopefully, the world is encompassed with greener pastures, cleaner air, plenty of food, thousands of types of animals, healthier structures, vast oceans, and most importantly, plenty of humans who are fighting in this war against climate changing and WINNING!

Sincerely,

Lydia

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.
