Dear Patricia,

You are very old now, forty-five to be exact. I hope this letter catches you at a good time, when you are old, happy, and healthy with your child, Blair. I just want you to remember that precisely 29 years ago, we were best friends, and I hope that we still keep in touch now. Although we have our differences sometimes and you forget everything you want to tell me, I hope you know that you mean a lot to me, and I hope that you aren’t dying of climate change (?). I hope that you remember all the fun times we had at Everest, all the weird advice we shared, all the great kwentos, and the boys (Oh boy so many boys). I am so grateful that I have a friend like you. Thank you for everything. CALL ME IN 2050 IF U GET THIS I LOVE YOU BYE BYE

Love your soul sister,

Meagan Co Say

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

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 residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
