Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses. I hope the air of Australia is still known to be the freshest. Animals and plants still flourish in all parts of the land. Exploring and savoring these moments I know you have with your determination to travel. I hope you have a family and go on road trips with them. I am sorry we never could as a family because I know you would’ve loved to.

I hope you have some amazing job that is not just sitting in a chair and typing all day and I do hope the same for me cause we both know that I would be playing some sort of game and I would be 100% addicted. I hope you live in an environmentally friendly house to some extent. I know you have taken on mum’s weird recycling habitats that drive everyone nuts. I hope you don’t have an extra-large red bin and waste food all the time. I hope you cook your own meals every night or someone does.

I promise to make a bigger effort to be sustainable by using less plastic and recycling more. I promise to keep showing up to the Rocklea markets and buy fresh produce instead of buying the soggy frozen stuff. As much as I love my sweet foods that use way too much plastic, I know I need to reduce how much I buy.

I hope our bond is stronger than it is today as I sit in this classroom wondering if you will in fact read this. I hope you are no longer in a pandemic and there is a vaccination for covid-19.

I love you so much even when I don’t show it.

Much love your big sister,
Jessie

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Lincoln,

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.
