Dear Shiro,

I believe you are well equipped with the know-how of the incidents that occurred in 2020. An unknown pandemic distorted our usual way of life. A highly contagious virus encroached human life, and nations all over the globe closed their borders. Millions were infected, there were recoveries, but the number of deaths was shocking. Factories closed, and a new piece of clothing- the facemask, was suddenly introduced to us. For three months, people had no idea what they were dealing with, and those who treated the situation normally, the virus- COVID-19 treated them abnormally. Factories closed down productions, and in such a short span, millions were rendered jobless.

Several countries struggled and managed to contain the spread, additionally, to mitigate the situation and protect the unknown future, it required leaders with a strong will. Many of these leaders emerged but later coiled in distress. On the other hand, scientists were looked up to; the healthcare workers were in the frontline fighting with an invisible enemy, sacrifices had to be made to control the situation. The pandemic reminded the leaders of their primary work to serve the people and not their selfish interests. Setting up sustainable healthcare facilities was prioritized, and the doctors were regarded as the heroes, unlike previous times where they were seen as just other social workers in the communities they served.

We all look forward to cleaning the earth, free from viruses and crashed healthcare systems. The cases of racism and xenophobic attacks are a dreaded curse that will only hurt everyone in due course. Peace and healthy international relations are the hope of maintaining a clean and sustainable environment. A conducive, green environment for the wildlife and the natural features is what we expect to have in the near future. We wish and hope that such a situation finds you prepared to deal with it in the future.

More Messages to the Future

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

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.

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

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

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.
