Dear Future Self,

2017, 10 March

Hello dear future self!

First of all I hope you are fine. I also hope that the world is now a better place with more love and kindness. I hope that everybody is able to practice their religion. I hope that all humans get over racism and the idea that some beings are better than others. We all live on this one planet. When you are in the universe, you do not see borders. You just see land and ocean. We are not meant to fight against each other we need to stand together and protect our nature.

When we want to change the world, the only thing we can do is change ourself. Everyday we are born again and everyday we can choose what we do and how we do it. I choose to be mindful. I live mindful. I don’t need many clothes or a new phone every few years. I choose to ride my bike instead of driving the car. I live mainly vegan. But first of all I love myself and the nature I live in. When you love you care and when you care, you help this world. I’m not perfect and I will never be. Just as other humans not perfect and will never be. But you do not need to be a perfect being to change the world. Little things day by day change the world.

I hope that you did not forget this.

Ciao

Giulia (18 Years old, from Germany)

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Gabriel,

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

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 Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

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 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

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
