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

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Hi buddy,

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

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Child,

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

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear grandkids,

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

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

I will encourage composting at work.
