Dear People of the Future,

Everyday I think about what an important yet terrifying time we live in today. So many changes socially, environmentally and politically are occuring, and the future becomes more uncertain as each day passes.  I get so angry at the people who lived before me, who created or allowed for the creation of these social and economic systems that seem impossible to fix. Some days it seems so impossible that I want to give up completely, but then I snap out of it. I know I have a responsibility to you, the people of the future.  I don’t want to be a part of the people who just sat by, pushing responsibilty on everyone but themselves. I want to be a part of the movement of people fighting for a better present and future that we all deserve.

I hope to become and remain a member of this movement by continuing my education in environmental studies (and hopefully finding a career in the field), lifting up the voices of those who go unheard and doing as much as I can to fight for a healthy, just and peaceful future.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

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 future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.
