Dear Humans of the Future,

I hope you’re doing ok. The way the world is heading right now might mean that in your time there may be several crisis afoot, from extreme weather patterns to depletions of drinking water. You may be living a very minimal waste life, or a very cramped one. This isn’t the future I wish to see for humanity, but it definitely seems that it is unfolding to look that way.

I’m writing this letter today to pledge my efforts towards a better tomorrow by committing to living more sustainably. I think with this comes the decision to opt for things that leave the least to little carbon footprint. This means riding my bike to work, rarely eating meat or animal products, conserving energy and water at home, planting vegetation in my home. I believe the best way to help you of the future though, is to support policy change that enacts regulations to make our world more green. This will involve not only more political involvement on my end, but also a will to spread the word and encourage others to do the same.

My hopes for the world of tomorrow are for a much broader movement for co-existence to be in place. I hope those in power have an empathy towards all walks of life and not just those in their backyard. I hope that the efforts I pledge to living and supporting a more sustainable lifestyle within our world will help humanity in the future. Lastly I hope you’re in a place better than where we are now.

Thank you,

 

Francisco Arreguin

Dear Annie and Eric,

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.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Children,

I wish I had a crystal ball and could peep into it to see you all happy and safe in a world that nourishes you and that is also nourished by you, a world where the resources it provides are as valued as the people in it and not frittered away by greed and power.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to educate others TODAY.

 

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,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
