Dear future me,

Dear myself, How are you? Do you have wet feet but miss the rain? Did you see some hurricanes? Do you miss your wintercoat? Did you make your trip to the NorthPole as planned when you were 20 years old? Maybe you’re already used to it …

If I want to read this message lying in my bed with my husband, close to each other because it’s cold and raining, I need to take action now. The message needs to be transmitted as well, which you did, I’m sure!  But now, I, and others, need to take action. My future husband is, I hope, doing the same. I hope he wants a green garden as well, rainy nights but dry feet.

Everything is a question mark…. we can’t predict everything but we can do everything to prevent the worst of happening.

Xxx,

Your 20 years old self,

More Messages to the Future

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.
