Dearest Wicomico,

Our world and our lifestyle is in danger. The way we carelessly crank the AC and eat meat (canned tuna for you) can not last. We see the BGE bill and bigger storms and we realize that maybe we don’t want this lifestyle. Not if it means climate change and hurting our planet. So we have decided to change our lifestyle. It isn’t worth it if it means putting others in more vulnerable situations at risk. We are incredibly privileged to be able to make that choice to become more environmentally friendly. You will decide to kill less birds and I will make the conscious effort to reduce my consumption. We will start conversations with our parents and family to rethink our energy and dietary needs. We have learned that in order to enjoy more, we need to be less. Less wasteful and less pessimistic and less ignorant. I will vote for important solutions like clean energy and green spaces while you take another nap. We see that we needed to change our habits in order to protect the nature that we love. We will do it for each other and I thank you for being the most inspiring kitten boy ever.

Dear Tomorrow

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

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

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

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.
