Dear future human,

I am sorry that we have handed the world over to you in the state that it is in. It’s not my generation’s fault, we have been trying to reverse the changes. I sit here from the perspective of a young person losing hope. In my 19 years of life I have watched racism, systematic oppression, greed, and a disregard for the earth’s living things and the way it has affected our society. I want to hope that you are living in a better society, but I honestly don’t know. I do know that my individual actions are working to create a better future for everyone. Despite feeling powerless I know that one person can make a difference.

More Messages to the Future

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To my daughter,

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.

 

Dear Future,

I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.
