Dear Me of Tomorrow,

In the future, I would like to preserve Lake Champlain in upstate New York. I know that you might not know what that is but it’s a lake that I hold dear. My grandparents used to live there before they moved down south to Florida. I don’t want that lake to be polluted because there are too many pretty places that have been destroyed in the world. Has this place been contaminated by waste and/or other things left over from human “progress”?

In the year 2016 it was the hottest year on record, seeing as it was 0.94 degrees in Celsius and 1.69 in Fahrenheit [above normal]. I know why this is: people are burning trees. Trees take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen but when trees are burned they just release more carbon dioxide. Also, once the tress are burned up there will be less trees to take in the Co2. This leaves the Co2 and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere where it will heat up the Earth causing global warming.

I hope that Lake Champlain doesn’t dry out or get polluted beyond repair. I promise that I will not burn a living tree. I won’t litter. I will put trash in the trash can and recycle as much as possible. I will protect the animals that need me both here as well as in Lake Champlain.

Love.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

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 Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

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

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
