Dear Sammy,

As a 20 year old college student I am learning so much about importance of sustainability and outcomes of climate change. By this time you will be 34 years old. It is scary to learn about these things regularly because the future holds so many unknowns. There are some things that we do know about the future. The climate will continue to rise no matter what we do so we need to find a way to slow down this process and give back to the planet. The Earth has provided us with all the resources we need to thrive on this planet. We have taken advantage of the abundance of resources that the Earth has provided us with. We then distributed these resources unevenly throughout the planet to make a profit rather than providing the public with equal access to resources that are necessary to live. Because people have and still take advantage of the resources that we are provided on this planet, we must now take action to try and slow the climate change and mass extinction processes. I promise that from now on I will take shorter showers, walk when possible, take public transportation as much as possible, stop irrigating my lawn, eat less meat, and do everything I can to reduce the amount of waste I am producing. I am sorry for what you might be dealing with in 2050. Hopefully by that point things have changed and there are more sustainability guidelines people and companies must follow. Although there are changes being made right now, it must happen faster. l promise to do everything I can to advocate for change and recognition for climate issues.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
