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.

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

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.
