Dear Nephew,

By now, you might know that your aunt has tried her very best to fight for the rights of the place we call home. Whether I am still with you or not, I want you to stand for something greater than yourself. Whether its standing up against politicians polluting the air with factories established in low income communities, or whether it is educating your future friends and family that we have placed our only home in danger and it is up to every single one of us to bring planet Earth back to health.

Don’t be afraid to place your voice in the environmental community because you have every right to speak up as an indigenous citizen of planet Earth. I want you to be able to experience the things I experience when I was growing up. I want you to be able to travel the world and experience the wonderful, breathtaking views this world has to offer. I want you to be able to swim with whales that were on the verge of extinction, or encounter a wild elephant in Africa and see learn that they belong to be here just as much as humans do. Or swim in the oceans in Florida or California without having the fear that your health might be in danger. I want you to be able to look up into space and witness the millions of stars that revolve Earth.

I want you to experience a better world. A world where you don’t have to worry about getting sick with the fruits and veggies you eat, or worry about the cruelty and injustices an animal had to go through to end up in your plate. I don’t want you to worry about the trash that piles on top of dumpsters in the alley. I don’t want you to worry about hunger around the world.

I promise that I tried my best. I promise that I will keep fighting for a better future for your and future generations. I promise that I will not give up, for this is a stressful and overwhelming dialogue all across the world. I promise that you will witness great changes as I have had a glimpse of many already. I promise that I will teach you the ways as I have been taught by great speakers. The best advice I can give you is to educate yourself and others. Shine a light in others and start a revolution that benefits all living life on Earth.
It’s not an easy fight, but united we will accomplish great changes for your generation and the generations of your future children.

The fight is in our hearts and minds.

Aunty Yoli

More Messages to the Future

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go DEEP GREEN

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

dear future children,

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

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
