Dear Future Generations,

In 2019, I am scared for the future. I am afraid that my generation and the generations before me are continuing to ruin the environment to the point of no return. Currently, the U.S. is one of the main countries that are contributing to the pollution of Earth. Right now I am living in San José, California where the population is increasing each year and is resulting in an increase in energy usage. In today’s government, there are many politicians who believe that our planet is not in danger. Also, many individuals continue to ignore the fact that global warming is a myth and refuse to take action.

Currently, there are people who are trying to find ways that we can reduce the use of natural gases and oil. Unfortunately, the U.S. heavily depends on natural gases and oil and does not want to support renewable energy. Maybe later in the future, there will be a time where people will make renewable energy affordable and easy to access. I hope that by the year 2050 there is only renewable energy being used and oil is no longer the main source for energy consumption. I hope that the only cars that will exist are powered by renewable energy.

However, I still have hope. And I hope that you look at the world in 2050 and breathe in clean air, experience playing in the snow, and know that polar bears and other animals are not extinct. I hope that my generation and the past generation were able to fix our issues and that the world is in better condition. I hope that you are reading in your history textbooks about how everyone got together despite their differences and cleaned up their polluting habits. I wish that in the future there will be forests and that children will be breathing fresh clean air and drinking clean water in all countries.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,
