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

Dear Eleanor,

Send new updated messages to your loved ones at DearTomorrow

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

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.

 

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 Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

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.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Dear Asher,

All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

Dear Tripp,

I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
