dear tomorrow,

i am sorry. but i had dreams and goals that i was chasing, a selfish act, perhaps i single handedly couldve been the genius that changed the world, but i never took that path.

i instead wanted things that i have never seen, for the benefit of myself and my future. a truly selfish view in a selfish world. i am a product of the 21st century, a technological revolution of vanity and self interest.

so i am sorry in hindsight, but not sorry enough to have dedicated my life toward it. this cause is too big for one man, too powerful for a group of people. it seems unreachable to the masses and i feel now i am at the tipping point of accepting this fate. letting go of any potential world of irreversible effects.

i hope you are the generation to have figured it out, laughing at this message as if it were taken care of within a few years for you. i hope you have gov’s of sanity and humanitarian effort, a utopia of technology running the world, whilst also saving it.

my life enters its twilight, but as it does, i vow to dedicate my twilight to the cause, to further push the planet into a world of net zero emissions and eons of sustainability if that is even possible.

kind regards.

DTA

More Messages to the Future

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

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.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

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.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Lillyana,

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