Hey Everyone!

I don’t know what is going to come of climate change and, as a fourteen year old girl, I’m scared.

Last year, thanks to climate change, wildfires already got close to my house in Nelson, NZ. This year, the smoke from Australia is making my lungs clammy.

Life for me is pretty good right now (aside from the fear I push away), but I know others are suffering. I don’t know how to make a difference. I feel helpless while the people in charge are killing my future by not believing in climate change.

I know this is off topic but for all of you in the future, I hope you have found equality and happiness. I hope climate change hasn’t ruined you.

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

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

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear Before The Flood team,

We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
