Dear future society,

I don’t want to grow old and tell you stories of how amazing polar bears were. I don’t want to tell you stories of how old I was when Florida went underwater, or tell you how I only got to see snow only a few times before it disappeared and how wonderful it was to play in it. I don’t want to grow up and tell my children I never got to see a living coral reef in person because they all died. I don’t want to grow up having to wear masks in the future because we can’t breath in without feeling like we’re getting cancer. I don’t want to grow up and never get to go to California because it’s underwater. I don’t want to grow up because I’m afraid our future society won’t be able to see the amazing things I got to experience. I’m afraid to grow up. I’m afraid for my future children and their friends. I’m afraid for my future grandchildren and their spouse. But most of all, I’m afraid for our world.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

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.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.
