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

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

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.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
