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 all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

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.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

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.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear tomorrow,

Unfortunately, our selfishness and excessive greed have closed our eyes to the well-being of the planet, and it has suffered the consequences.

 

Meus filhos,

Espero que vcs tb encontrem ,de alguma forma,um caminho para colaborarem com Nossa Mãe Terra, bjs eternos.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!
