Dear future loved ones,

Today is October 31st, 2017; Halloween in San Jose, California. A time for celebrations of thrilling seeking horror and the irresistible sweet love of candy. Another holiday enjoyed by the companionship of friends and family in the comforts of our home. As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

Earth has been our home for as long as we can recall for. I would hope that you are growing up in such a beautiful place as our planet has to offer. A place where I had the luxury of celebrating precious moments while co-existing harmoniously with our planet. Unfortunately, my generation and past generations have caused a lot current and potential catastrophic natural events to our home due to our human activities. Much of our resources, nature, and living things are endangered due to burning of fossil fuels and pollution.

I would hope our Earth will be replenished with natural resources, sea levels at peace, and overall climate to naturally adjust. I would hope our wildlife and plant life would be to reproduce so you would enjoy and find all kinds of living, breathing things as simply as an extension of yourself, interconnected with one another. I would hope for the major shift in how we go about our daily lives by utilizing natural, replenished resources. Our technologies would be capable to produce something as ideal as Gigafactories – an eco-friendly factory introduced by the innovative entrepreneur, Elon Musk. These Gigafactories would completely stray away from the dependency of gasoline powered transportation to the dependency of environmentally friendly vehicles. This is a life that I hope for you, and a future we are working towards.

I would hope you’d be able to have the opportunity to enjoy as many Halloweens for future generations as well as we have been. And I would hope for your conscious and continuous efforts to take care of our home, Earth.

We only have today to truly live for. I will do my best to create a tomorrow for you.

Love always,

Hilliary Trang

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

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

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.

 

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 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.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.
