Dear future self,

Today is May 2, 2022 and the earth is not is great shape. We are cutting down trees at alarming rates, our coral reefs are almost completely dead, and all the carbon expelled into the atmosphere is raising world temperatures drastically.

I wish we had done more before now. I wish we had done more to ensure a safe planet for your future and our own.

In order to help make this change I promise to be more aware of my waste everyday in an effort to limit the trash stuck in landfills for eternity. I will also promise to limit now much meat and overly processed foods I eat as the production of these foods are environmental hazards. There is so much to do and even though I am just one person, I will try my hardest to value and respect Mother Earth the planet because it is all we have.

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
