Dear ‘Roxy’ (Aliyah),

If you are reading this I hope life has been treating you well. If not, let your uncle remind you that the stars in the sky are only there because someone saw the need for them- they saw the need for light. As I sit here at work in the college library, I can only manage to think about the beautiful, smart and ambitious women you have become. You are the light sweetheart- you can change the world with every breath you take. Right now, in 2018, the world is full of negativity. Being so young during all of the craziness reminds me that I want a better future for you. Strive to make this planet and those around you better; that doesn’t mean see who can race to be the most successful or who has the most notoriety. Instead, work cohesively to tear away at all that tries to divide or separate the human race. Spread awareness on topics that concern not just a single group but a whole ecosystem. Most importantly and I mean MOST importantly, spread peace, love and positivity. Never lose sight of who you are and who you strive to be. Who you are is all the world needs for change and if you don’t believe me take a look back at history… With enough said I shall close with this- I love you and never stop loving yourself or others… because remember, hurt people hurt people and love is always the answer.

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Future Me,

I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.
