Dear future self,

As a child one of my favorite activities was to climb in the large trees in Meme’s backyard. You would play outside for hours discovering little creatures and picking flowers in the garden. Can your kids still do things like this? Can you watch them as they play in nature or do they not have trees to climb in and flowers to pick? How is the earth? Did you come up with a solution to save earth and solve climate change? I hope you did because right now I am scared by how earth is looking right.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

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 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 future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

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.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.
