Dear Tomorrow, and my future family,

I am writing this in November 18, 2016 to make a promise to myself and my family in the future, to play a part in creating an awareness of climate change. I pray hard that when this message is being read in 2030/2050, the world would be a much better place to live in, a place without pollution, floods and mass extinctions. Today climate change has taken it for the worst especially in the bay area, nonetheless only some of us are taking a stand to face this real threat. What’s more scary is that many of us are well aware of its effects towards the future of our generation, and did nothing hoping for blind miracle. Therefore the purpose of this letter is to apologize for what my generation has done towards our home, the heaven given upon by us by Him was polluted that no man nor beast can step on anymore.

To apologize for the slaughter of all the wonderful species that might one day disappear without a trace. I am truly ashamed for the present that has caused so much destruction that was nurtured by our forefathers, there are so many more but many of the remorse can no longer be describe by words. However there is something that we, I can do now, to feel optimistic that we can change and recover from the mistakes that we made. Everyday, more and more people are helping bit by bit to help cure our planet from its fever, from using solar powered energies to power their home, to carpooling and driving electric cars. As a notable actor, Leonardo DiCaprio asserts “Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing out entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.” Each and everyone of us is slowly but surely playing a role in this global theater, contributing their efforts to reduce the effects of climate change for our future generations to have a better place to breathe.

So being said all this, what did I do now that would help? Well I am still only a college student but that does not stop me. I have started recycling wastes, using energy efficient light bulbs, and supporting carbon tax. This may not contribute much but I am hoping that as I get old enough, I would hope to become a conservationist and voice out my opinions to everyone, passing on my messages to each and everyone. No matter what, I promise that I will not be quiet, nor make excuses that would not benefit either of us. I know that I may sound selfish by making it seem like I am only contributing because of you guys, but believe me that I truly care for what might happen to the planet and its inhabitants for years to come. I believe in myself that we can all make this changes and I hope that you guys will also believe in me. And lastly, I hope that after reading this message from the past, my feelings and desire would be pass on towards everyone and to generations may come. I hope that you all are healthy and doing well. We only have one home (unless your generation manages to create sustainable living on Mars), so lets cherish and protect it with all our might.

All my love.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear Before The Flood team,

We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.

 

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.

 

Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
