Dear Future Self,

Climate change is a growing issue. Once, it was a tiny spark that we thought wouldn’t affect us too much, or we were confident we would be able to stop it. Now it’s a raging fire, and if we don’t get our act together, we’re basically dead. In 20 years, climate change will be irreversible. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know if we don’t act now, it will be too late. I’m already trying my best to do my part:

1. I’m bringing metal straws with me. (No, I’m not Visco, I’m just doing my best)
2. I try not to take long showers. It helps that we live in Santa Monica because we have a lot of water saving appliances.
3. We donate our old clothes and toys that are in good condition so they can be used again. (God, Emily doesn’t even need to buy stuff!)
4. I’m in the social justice and empowerment club so we’ll be helping out with this issue. We’re already writing an environmental pledge.

I will do what I can do help, though I understand I can’t do this alone.
Kind Regards,
Sarah Misun Parmet (2019)

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

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

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

dear tomorrow,

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