Dear People of the Future,

There are a lot of problems in the world that we have known about for decades such as global climate change, fracking, the negative effects of mass production of cows, issues with plastic, and so much more. Right now because our world operates in what they think is “efficient production” in other words, a greedy mentality, the effort being put to preserve earth for you is not being done in the best possible way.

I vow to you fellow friend to do my part to minimize my carbon footprint, use decomposable products, and eat a sustainable diet. I hope that by 2050 our world prioritizes planet earth the way it should because planet earth does so much for us. Everyday technology continues to advance and find better ways to do things. Use technology to find the cheapest and best way to use renewable energy and grow better food that drives people away from eating so much beef! hahaha beef is good don’t get me wrong but we can’t abuse the consumption of it any longer. So much of the land in earth is used to grow food for cows, not humans but cows! how ridiculous is that?! So many of your fellow human beings are struggling to get clean water and good food. Do not forget that humans come before animals.  Additionally, this is so important, please please please go back to holistic herbal medicine, stay away from pharmaceutical industries! Not all pharmaceuticals medicine is good for you, it can be addicting and cause worse side effects than the issue itself. Mother nature provided you with all the tress, animals, herbs, and energy you would need to be healthy both mentally and physically. Don’t let man tell you they know more than earth itself because earth has lived longer than all of us. I love you my fellow friend. Take care of yourself and those around you.

More Messages to the Future

 

dear future children,

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

 

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 child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

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 Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.
