Dear tomorrow,

These days have been rough with several natural disasters happening in Florida. Some of us do not understand the connections with our footprint in the earth, while others try to reduce our impact of damage in our home. We might not suffer the harsh consequences that you might have to suffer unfairly, and I wish there was a way to reverse that. It is hard to convince everyone that climate change is happening, however, as it is mentioned in the book “The open space of democracy”, it is a never-ending project where the windows and doors remain open. The project has already started, and change is happening in some of us. I really hope that in the future present it is not only a project, but our lifestyle of treating fairly to the only home we have.

Dear Future Self,

Climate change didn’t happen overnight. It was little things that grew bigger and bigger and we ignored them even as we saw them becoming stronger than we ever thought. That’s the same way we must battle this at an individual level. Believe in the power of change from just one person, because no matter how it feels, we are never truly alone in this fight.

 

Hola hijo/a o quizá nieto/a,

Realmente estoy asustado, porque en mi Pueblo, en mi maldito pueblo existe un paraje de páramo extenso, que era diverso, pero ahora las lagunas que existen hay se están quedando sin agua.
