Dear Tomorrow,

It was when I was visiting my family in the Philippines of summer 2017 where I started to realize how I was taking this climate for granted. I went to use at the end of the hall which I was in the room I was staying in I left the light on since I was only going to be gone for a little bit. Though, when I came back I ran into my cousin he said, “you didn’t turn off the light.”

“I was only using the bathroom.”

“It doesn’t matter, you’re wasting energy.” I was impressed with this kid since he was younger than me and he’s concerned about the relation of mother nature.

This made me think about the times I didn’t care about using so much energy in my house or wasting water either. When I’m in my home I would carelessly leave the lights on for some silly reason instead of looking at the broader picture on how it can globally harm us. This makes me feel so guilty how it can subtly harm our only Earth. So Tomorrow, be brave to turn off those lights when leaving the room even if you fear the dark. Don’t leave the water running in your kitchen/shower unless you are really going to use it. And lastly, remember to always recycle the coffee cup/soda can you might have in your hand!

We only have one Earth and there is no other planet like it. Now, let’s take care of it together.

With love,

Gabrielle Legaspi

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.
