Dear me,

I’m just eighteen now and I feel insecure about many things in my life: my body, my character, my choices and especially my future. I’m not sure who I’m going to be in ten, twenty or even thirty years from now. Which path is the right one? No idea. I’m certain, however, that I’d like to find love one day and make it last. As you probably remember, I’ve never found love before and I’m looking forward to discovering the beauty and the joy of it. I’d love to have children and a fullfilling job that makes me happy.I hope you will have travelled a bit around the globe by then, as you’ve always dreamt. I hope that the Coronavirus pandemic will end soon, in order to go back to our ordinary life. We already know that climate change is an urgent issue and I hope that by 2050 we will have fulfilled our duties, in order to make the Earth a better place. I believe in humankind and in its conscience. We may have just enough time to prevent certain catastrophes, I hope we’ll do a good job.
I hope that throughout your life you’ve always been yourself, the genuine, funny and messy Anita. I’d love to know that by then you will have joined an amazing gospel choir and took theatre lessons. I hope you’ve improved your cooking skills and become a skilled pastry chef.
Best wishes for the future,
always me

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

Dear Bella,

I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
