Dear Tomorrow,

I’m sorry. I’m sorry that we killed off hundreds of animal species. I’m sorry that you can’t swim in the ocean because we filled it with trash. I’m sorry that we ruined the air that you breathe. I’m sorry that we polluted every inch of this place we call home. I’m sorry that you haven’t seen a tree in years. I’m sorry you can’t see the starry sky. I’m sorry my generation didn’t do enough, when everyone told us that milenials were the ones who could change things. There is no Planet B, but we aren’t doing anything to protect Planet A. It was our home, but now it’s our prison. I remember when I was really little and I learned that eventually the earth would end, I was so scared. But my mom told me that we didn’t have to worry about that for a long long time, and that we wouldn’t even be alive when that happened. I was so relieved. Now, just a few years later, that fear has come back. This time more real, because at this rate, I’m going to live to see the world destroyed. I hope that this letter means nothing to the world of the future, and that we made a change in the way we live. I hope that we saved the earth. If not, I’m sorry.

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

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.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.

 

Dear fellow human,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
