Dear me,

I’m sending this letter to remind you that you can stop and rest for awhile. I know life is throwing a fit of problems but I know you can handle it like you handled last year’s hurricane. Everything will be fine, just hold on to that. Love yourself the way you wanted to be loved, never let them say otherwise. Decide on your own. Know which path to travel. Forgive those who don’t ask for forgiveness. B strong and stand firm in the name of the Lord. Be faithful even others are not. Let this January 1, 2018 Kate remind you that half a year is well, so do more in the last remaining 6 months of your year. Don’t waste your time. I hope your not dating someone, focus on yourself, family and career comes first. Love is not required. Please stay single as I am now.

Sincerely,
Kate from January 1, 2018

More Messages to the Future

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Dear my future family,

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

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

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.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

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 not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
