Dear my future child,

I have always wanted to go up to the Norwegian Fjords since I was in 6th grade. It’s a very beautiful place filled with exquisite valleys and lush boreal forests. Norway is truly a magical place that hopefully, by the time you are reading this letter I will have gone to.

Right now in 2018 climate change is a hot topic. We are already seeing the effects, poles are melting, the weather is getting more and more unpredictable. The land is getting filled up with trash from landfills and it seems like the whole world is polluted.

However, this is why I am currently working hard to earn my degree in Environmental studies. I hope that by earning this degree, I can help reverse these effects so that you still have magical places like the Norwegian Fjords to dream about.

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

Love, your future mom

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

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.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

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

 

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.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear people of The Future,

Thank you for reading. Do your part to save the globe.
