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.

More Messages to the Future

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.
