Dear future generations,

2019 is the year i’m writing this to you and i’m sorry if it’s not the best but i’m trying my best to write you a letter that you can read when you’re grown. As of right now i’m in my sophomore year going into junior year and i’m preparing myself to have a good future with you in it. I hope that when your in your in highschool to have the time of your life and enjoy it because many people can’t, but I don’t want you to do anything bad. I would like for you to do good in school, I know that you might think school is a waste of time but it’s not because school is a place where you get to prepare yourself for a good job/future. I hope that when you’re born and grown this earth will be in good conditions and not have as much pollution. I promise i’ll try to do my best for you to have a good health.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

 

Querida Emanoely,

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

 

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.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
