Dear Future World,

I hope you all, we all have learned. Right now its 2020 and the world is in shambles. We have not prioritized our environment despite the warnings that we are running out of time to do so. Despite there being a global pandemic, the administration in the United States is trying to roll back so many of the policies people have spent years fighting for. I hope we’re doing less fighting now. I hope we have placed an importance on keeping the environment clean, clear, and cool. I hope we have invented new technologies (or thought of ways to use the old ones) to help us live lives that promote a future for everyone, not continuing to live in ways that drastically and negatively impact the world. It was just the 50th anniversary of the very first Earth day a couple of weeks ago. I, at 20, learned so much about the history and importance of this day. I hope that by now everyone understands the magnitude of the sentiments behind Earth day and that we are continuing to carry those ideas at the forefront of the decisions we make. I guess all I can say is I hope we have realized that no other decisions that are made will matter if the Earth is not put first.
All my best,
Mary

More Messages to the Future

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

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.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

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.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.
