Dear Whoever’s Still Alive to Read This,

Hey there from the year 2020. Yes, 2020. And yes, it’s as bad as they say it was. Being stuck in the middle of the global pandemic wasn’t exactly how I intended on spending the first year of the roaring ’20s, but here we are. The decade isn’t the only thing roaring though; the alarms warning us about climate change are getting louder and louder, but unfortunately, it’s as though those in charge keep hitting the snooze button. Our public officials seem too worried about lobbyists and keeping their pockets full than filling the stomachs of people who are dying of starvation due to the droughts and destruction that climate change brings. I live in South Florida, and it genuinely scares me that our beautiful region could be a modern Atlantis in a few decades. I worry about my children’s future, and whether or not they’ll even have one because if we keep pillaging the earth at this rate, there’s not going to be an earth left. I really hope you all didn’t recreate Wall-E and escape to the stars in order to avoid fixing the problems your ancestors created, but I can’t say I’d blame you all for it. I’m so sorry in advance that we hadn’t done more to save our planet; I know plenty of people who care about it (me being one of them), but unfortunately, the world has developed an attitude of apathy and indifference towards saving the planet. I just hope you all haven’t done the same. I hope things are better.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.
