Dear Future Generations:

Dear future generations: 

I’m sorry. 

You are now probably living in a house, which is built in an underground city with no sunlight. Oh, you probably don’t know what sunlight is. Let me explain. Centuries ago, people used to live on the ground in apartments and houses, under the blue sky, and the warm sunlight, surrounded by green trees and colorful flowers which were plants that grow by the climates. There were different climates that were amazing, falling rain and snow from the sky, growing up the plants. There were seasons. There were forests that were built up by plenty of plants. There were animals and insects living all over the world. There were too many other amazing creatures, and things, that I can’t tell you only in one letter… 

You might don’t understand those because you have never experienced those and have never known those… which I’m so sorry for, for that it’s caused by my generation. 

You get to do nothing wrong, yet getting those punishments for us from nature. The ecosystem is destroyed due to our damage and the animals go extinct. The soil, which was used to be healthy and grows plants, was salinated, and eroded. The forests, which were used to be grown plenty of trees, were deforested. The animals, which were lived lives on the planet like us, were extinct. The environment, which used to be lively and colorful, turned to grey. I apologize, for my generation, to you that we didn’t protect our environment well, and leave you guys a fully polluted, dreadful planet to live. I’m sorry, so sorry for that. 

I’m sorry, future generations, sorry for that we made a mistake that is so big that we don’t know it until it’s too late and we missed the boat pulling it back… 

But wait, I’m not sorry for now. The error hasn’t been proven by now to a mistake. We still have the chance to pull it back and build the future, for you guys. We need to make a change to our lifestyle and our attitude to nature. We get to stop climate change, global warming. Our hearts for nature, and the future. Say “no” to deforestation and “yes” to reforestation. Biking more than driving. Also, stop soil erosion and salinization is pretty important. We need to be more caring for our environment and future, to take the problem seriously, that to change the world, and the future.

Last, I hope to found you living a natural life.

Best Wishes

Past Generations

From 2020

More Messages to the Future

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

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.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
