Dear Future Generations,

I hope all is well with what you’re dealing with environmentally. I can’t imagine the magnitude of what you all may be facing in the years to come. As of now, it is November of 2017. I’m currently 19 and living within the city of Chicago. Currently, our world is in an unsustainable place due to the United States government, under Donald Trump, who is denying climate change’s existence. The government have even cancelled events in which scientists discuss climate change. All of the students and people working in the environmental field, as well as other concerned citizens, are deeply worried about this issue.We are now past the point of no return, we must learn to live with our choices and the Trump Administration has just put us four steps backwards. I hope by the time someone sees this in 2050, this will no longer be an issue and the public, as well as the government, will be on the same side, battling climate change and doing everything we can to stop it. I truly hope this is a transformative time in world history and humanity will be on a better track. However, we have a long way ahead of us and environmentally concerned people, such as myself, are working very hard to make people aware and get this process started because the choices we are making right now are not sustainable for the future. I do hope the choices you make within the society you live in are for the better of the world and not just yourself. As of now were are reaching the threshold of two degrees celsius above normal temperatures. I hope that by the time you’re reading this, the temperature has stagnated and ceased to increase substantially. Climate change is more than just a political and social issue, but it’s also a survival issue. I wish you the best, and to really appreciate what you have in terms of your environment because someday it may also cease to exist.

Thanks,

Alexander Pekar

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.
