More Messages to the Future
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.
Dear future me,
I am 19 years old, and I am angry.
Dear Malasher and Alex,
My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
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.
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.
Dear Future Family,
As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,
There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,
I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
The gift for next generation,
To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
