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

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

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 future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
