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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Filhota,

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

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
