Dear Zeina, Tala, Yara, Jalal, Tamer, my future children, and my siblings’ children,

It is 2019 April 22nd now. I am attending university to earn a degree in Environmental Engineering.

I am trying as much as I can to protect Mother Earth and reduce our effects on climate change. I am talking to people everyday as much as possible about the issue. I am on a plant-based diet for a year and a half now. I try not to use plastic as much as possible. I compost. I really try. It is just annoying and frustrating to see that most people just do not really care about it!!

I will try my best to the extent of my safety and others around me to protect the earth and work together with all the people for a better future and I hope I will still be alive and well in 2050, so that I can be proud to have you in my life and that I have worked to maintain a good world for you to live in.

Thank you.
Peace, love, and blessings <3

More Messages to the Future

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

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.

 

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.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

To anyone who has heard my music,

I promise to care about the planet.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

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 Ezmae,

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

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
