Dear son or Daughter…

Climate change is a problem that touches our entire population, it menaces everything we ever did; our inventions, our knowledge and different cultures. It is a problem where the solution resides in every one of us, if we want change, we need to have more will; we need to change our individual ways, we need to influence the most people and we need to put pressure on the ones in power, the ones that are able to allow a direct impact to make a positive change. Like we were able to do in the past, I have hope that humanity will find a quick solution to the problem and maybe allow new technologies that could be in favor of our planet. You don’t need to experience the problem to know it is real, look at the physical repercussions; natural catastrophes, rising sea level, and take a look at the ecological grief; people are affected mentally by this problem in many ways. Our changing environment influences negatively our mental health and it is more than a sign for us to wake up and take action. I am scared towards the situation, I feel like people have lost hope when they say it is too late, not just one can find the solution, it is a problem that is out of one’s control, we need to act together and follow leaders that have the ambition to influence for the better our future. Although, I still have hope, I like to have hope, it motivates me. My promise is that I will do anything I can do to better my ways. I want to undertake ways that are in favor of our survival and beautiful planet. I will spread ideas and positivity concerning the problem in order to touch the most people in hope they will better themselves for the better of our world and every single thing that is involved in it.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

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.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Ezmae,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
