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

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
