Dear Tomorrow,

Things are really bad. Climate change and the overall destruction of the Earth and it’s ecosystems worsens every day. Many refuse to believe that Climate Change or environmental issues are important, blinded by sheer ignorance, fear, or politicians and corporations doing whatever they can to make a buck.

We have elected Donald Trump into office who is an adamant climate change denier, dedicated to regressive coal and oil policies, and repealing regulations that protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and so many other aspects of the world we live in.

The fact that so many seemingly rational people want to make the survival of our planet and our people a right vs. left issue drives me insane. I hope we can overcome this roadblock before it’s too late. And while so many strides are being made in the fields of renewable energy and sustainability, I feel a huge cultural and systemic shift must be made before the Earth will be able to be saved.

I’m sorry that we did not preserve the world enough for you and I hope that my generation and the ones after make enough strides where you and the people you love can continue to live happily and create a more just and sustainable society.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

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

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.
