Dear Tomorrow,

The path getting here is convoluted. It’s confusing and not something I entirely understand. I won’t pretend to, nor will I ever be able to. I acknowledge that it’s not something I’ll ever be able to fully grasp.

I’ve learned and I am still learning how I can do my part and contribute to something much larger. Though I don’t have all the answers, I promise to still question. Though I’ll never find a solution to make these problems go away on my own, I am a part of a larger community that won’t stop until we do.

They say one man can change the world, but what can an army do? There are many others fighting for the same things as I — reducing the impacts of climate change, equal opportunity and equity for all, economic and political justice — just to name a few. We really are in this together. And together, we’re fighting for a better tomorrow. Though I can’t grasp the magnitude of the societal and environmental issues we face today, together, collectively, we can. Each individual, each story is unique and equally as important and valued. By coming together we can get through this. And so can you.

With love,
Claire

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

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.
