Dear Future Self,

How are you doing? I hope you’re doing well. I hope some things have gotten better for you, and I hope you have a nice family and a good group of friends to support you. I think it’d be reassuring for you to read this and fully understand that things have gotten better for you. I guess I should ask a few questions about how things are different in the future? Did they ever figure out how to fix climate change? How about the political situation? And how about world peace? Eh…that’s probably a little TOO optimistic. Perhaps I should scale back my questions to something a little lighter. What were some of the major technological advancements of the past decades? As of now, everyone’s just waiting for the next Apple and Android device, and as far as we can tell they’ll be responsible for the next advancements. A new player could jump into the technological race at any point, have there been any surprises? And whatever happened to Tesla and SpaceX? Did anything come of them, or did they both sort of fizzle out? How about entertainment? Have there been any major advancements in the ways that we view film, television, and video games? As of now, it seems like movie theaters may be falling apart, are they still around? If so, how are they different? Hey, do you remember the pandemic? I’m almost afraid to ask if things have not improved by the time you read this, but with the way things are going, I have some hope. Anyway, I guess I’ve taken up enough of your time, so I suppose I should wrap up this letter. I’ll end things with a plea to you: I want you to take a look back on everything that’s happened to you since you first wrote this letter, and write another letter responding back to this one. I figure that it’ll probably put things into perspective for you.

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,

I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.
