Dear my future self,

It is fall semester 2020 and you’re about to finish taking a Global Climate Change course. I hope that in 30 years you’ve done what you can to make less of a carbon footprint in the world. I hope you’re sharing what you know and are passing down good habits to your children and grandchildren so that eco-consciousness is being passed down through generations. I hope people that care about the environment have been put into office and are doing what they can to fight climate change and people that are against it. I hope the United States has moved into a less consumeristic society and we’re being more eco-conscious of our spending and of our electricity. I hope the automobile industry has moved into full electric or that US public transportation has gotten sustainably better.  I pray that our waters are less polluted, our air quality is clean year round. I pray that we’re not experiencing crazy weather change, and our forests are fuller and greener. I’m hopeful for the future, the best I can do now is wait and see.

More Messages to the Future

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

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 the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

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 Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.
