I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

We are in the beginning of March 2017.

We talk more and more about climate change and its impact on our lives today, but especially tomorrow, for our future generations and the future of our beautiful planet.

There are people who believe in it and people who don’t, besides the facts and the scars that our behaviour already left and is still leaving on the face of our Mother Earth.

I do not have a children of my own, and more and more, I say to myself, I am glad I do not have them, because I do not want them to live in this world, especially in a world I cannot tell where it is going with all that is going on right now.

I cannot bear the thought of not being able to protect my children from all the harm and the duality of this world, so I prefer not to have them here and now.

But, that doesn’t mean that I do not believe in humanity, in the collective consciousness, in the goodness of the humankind, in our capacity to save this world, or what is left of it.

It is our responsibility to preserve this planet for as long as we can.

We are sometimes lost, like I am at this moment, I do not know where to start with and to which cause to turn to. There are so many that need our help, so I start by signing petitions that LDC foundation suggests and by writing this letter, by praying for the right cause to present to me where I could and would take concrete action.

Living in Belgium for almost 13 years now, coming from Macedonia, which is my country of origin, I do recycle (we still do not do this in Macedonia, hmmm, here is a thought, maybe I can start from there, raising the consciousness there, so that they can start recycling, too), but feel that this is not enough anymore, that I need to do more than juste recycle my trash on a daily basis.

Coming back to my previous thought that now cought my full attention, raising awareness in my country of origin Macedonia, to start recycling, I wonder where can I start from and with, what do I need to do, I do not live there anymore, I need guidance on this from someone who already did it, maybe I could write an article or something, and start from there….

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too, and one by one, we can and will save at least one big part, if not all of our beautiful home planet, for you, our future generations, and for your future generations, and their future generations…

I am looking forward to seeing what will this unfold for all of us in the years 2030-2050.

With all my love and care,

Lepa

More Messages to the Future

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.
