Dear Tomorrow,

At this point in time I look around at the constant neglect and carelessness from the country, community, and campus that I live in. Sometimes I feel so strongly about the necessity to combat climate change that I can feel my heart aching. It’s discouraging to see how many people do not know or do not care how their actions affect the world when it’s all I think about. It’s also discouraging feeling such a strong desire to do something but not knowing where to start or who to go to.

I know that I will become more and more involved for the rest of my life. But right now I pledge to continue trying to live a vegetarian lifestyle and eat as little meat and animal products as possible. I also will continue to try to sponsor a tree in someone’s name instead of buying people presents.

And hopefully by making these little steps I can look back when these letters are published and see the change that has been made. Hopefully by then we still have coral reefs, sharks, and the Amazon rain forest left. Hopefully by then environmental justice will be a part of every decision made at home and in the government.

More Messages to the Future

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

I love you Earth.
