Dear Future Me (myself & my children),

Ah it is 2021.. 2020 was a very very very rough year for the world, our vulnerable communities, and personally I went through a lot as well. You see I pretty much fit under all that were impacted by past events. 2020 a lot happened, racial injustice was everywhere. Although it has always been, this time the world talked about it. You see personally I went through a lot bc I was suffering from intense headaches that I have self-diagnosed as a response to the evils of the world that have created vulnerable people. What do I mean? We live in a capitalist society where it is very hard to prioritize Mother Nature & our well being…its difficult to serve our communities while taking care of ourselves & it should not be this way. I have hope that the future generations will rise against the world’s human made structures that have led to where we are now..we don’t have to live this way! I know I have hope bc I believe I am doing my best to serve our communities while practicing self care to prepare myself to also serve the next generation (my children & their neighbors) to build a sustainable & just world. I want my children to know that life will not be easy..it was not for our ancestors. The privilege we will be living (bc I am committed to building a safe space for us all) will be a response to the work of our ancestors. Many have dreamt about living comfortably ..I know that is my dream. I hope that by 2050 I will be happy with the time I’ve been given in this beautiful world..I hope that I can make this space for you all as well. I want us all to live at peace with our environments & the people in our spaces. Thank you. Wait lol If you don’t have children I want you to know that is ok! I just hope you find peace within yourself & everyone in your life in 20..?

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

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.

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
