Dear future self,

Hello dev,

I hope you are still doing okay out into whatever year you get this letter. Right now we are in our first year of college, we are still with Dom and we are a little unsure about the future. But that is not important right now, I just promise I will help so the world you know is better. The climate is changing and life is getting scary but I will make a promise to try to help out when I can. I am a bit lazy right now and slow to make huge changes in my life but I promise once I get a better mental state, I will work so hard for you. Not only will I work hard for your future, more importantly for the kids I plan to have. I hope when you get this you are raising beautiful children with Dom. I want a better world for them more than anything. I promise to live sustainably  and take care of myself and the planet to the best of my ability.

love,

Devin from 2019

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

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 Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
