Dear tomorrow,

It is currently May of 2018 and our planet is being pushed to its limits. Our population is increasing, and because of our society’s obsession with growth, we are using more natural resources than ever. Our industries are polluting our planet and our people are living unsustainably. I fear that we will continue to abuse our planet to the point of inhabitability. No other species has had as much of an impact as us. But if we can destroy our planet, I believe we can also find new ways of helping the planet, so that generations after you can enjoy life here on earth.

I hope that my generation will discover and implement a way for everyone to live and operate sustainably, and without waste. While some visionaries are working towards that goal, the rest of our population needs to be on board to changing the way they live and operate. I fear that a majority of our population is too apathetic or cynical to care to change. But hopefully they realize they need to before it’s too late.

I promise to make changes where I can and encourage others too as well. I also promise to work to bring sustainable change on a large scale by working with organizations that aim to do so as well.

I hope we succeed.

Delia Montoya

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.
