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

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

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.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

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.

 

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
