Dear Me,

I’m trying to reflect onto the future, but naturally the light is too slow, and illumination eludes me. No one can see what is through the dark door that is the future, we can only pick the threshold through which we seem to strut so confident. If you ask why people had their heads in the sand, know that obliviousness can be bliss. If you ask why there was so much inertia regarding so many issues, know that effort causes uncertainty. If you ask why we didn’t do more, know that it is hard to look at the past from the future, but that is what we must do now to create the change we want, that we need.

More Messages to the Future

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

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.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Future Earth,

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

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.
