Dear future me,

If you’re reading this, the year is 2050 and you’re 52 years old. By then, I would hope that the world survived a pandemic, a natural disaster, and reduced burning fossil fuels.

I would expect that many people have died from all the crazy things that are happening in the world right now. I would hope that the economy has recovered from the financial burden that the world is going through with the pandemic. I would hope that there would be a treatment or cure for COVID-19 so we can all go back to doing daily activities. I would also hope that our government has realized how damaging the effects of climate change has on our environment and has taken the steps needed to protect our lives and the wellbeing of our planet. But I would hope that by this stage, the most important part is that I am still alive and healthy while pursuing the things I love to do with the people I love by my side.

All the best,
Past me

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

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?

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Anya,

All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.
