Dear Future Hannah,

Right now I have just finished up a class about environmental justice. The world at this point in time is at a very pivotal moment when it comes to environmental responsibility and protection.

Trump was elected President last fall and is making threats to cut the EPA, pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement and continuously refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of climate change science. If he does not begin to make significant changes in his policy towards the environment, I fear that by the time you read this it may be too late to save ecosystems, refurbish biodiversity or replenish fresh water supply.

These concepts seem more and more real as I watch the death of the Great Barrier Reef and see as peoples are soon to be displaced because of rising ocean water levels destroying their lands.

I hope that by the time you read this the world is turning a more positive way. If it isn’t, I plead to you, as a last chance call to action, to get involved and push for significant change and reform. I fear that by the time you read this it will be too late, however I am hoping that you have already made your mark towards progress in social and environmental justice.

Please understand that today and every day that we sit by and do nothing, we are unconsciously contributing to the degradation of our surroundings. So please, continue the fight for justice and continue to push for educated policymakers.

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

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 Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
