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.

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.
