Dear 2030 version of Jesus,

Dear 2030 Me.

Wassup Chuy! How’s life been! I hope you remember 2019 me as a sophomore in Ventura High School. I hope you’re still alive :I. I hope you’re still healthy good-looking, and have accomplished our goal of being a Civil-Engineer. Or maybe you are playing guitar as a requintista in DEL Records, I don’t know. Haha probably not but I hope you are still practicing, and are really good by now. I hope Earth is still habitable by then and that life is as equally sustainable, and that conditions are rather improving rather than getting worse than it is in 2019. I hope you are doing great decisions and, welp, have me the correct girl by then. I am currently in fourth period, am a sophomore, in English class, and already have some tips for you, from things I hope you remember and hope that you never forget.

I want you, to regardless of your situations, keep moving forward! If you are facing a bad situation, entonces a chingarle. Don’t be a coward, and respect your family, have a healthy relationship with everybody, resist temptations of the flesh, and travel. I want you to be just like my primos currently are, living the good life, traveling, hosting parties, and are rich. Be like them. Do not do drugs, but I mean, drinking is fine I guess bro, no más cuando estés con los compas. I hope that if you have kids by 2030, or have not yet but are going to sometime soon, that you are the coolest dad, but do not make similar mistakes as your role as a father as you saw in 2019. Make sure our children have not lost Mexican traditions, and make sure they do know spanish fluently. That’s how I like it. Take care Jesus, y un ultimo consejo te voy a dar, si una no vale la pena, entonces a la próxima. XD Ya sabes. Hay te dejo Chuy, there’s only 5 minutes of class left. Te cuidas mucho, y cuidame a mis viejos.

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
