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

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

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.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?
