To anyone who stumbles upon this,

hello,

My name is Noelle and I am currently a third-year college student at SJSU in the year 2020. I hope that college is free or abolished by the time you are reading this, but I have no preference for which outcome presents itself. I am saddened by the current state of our world and I truly hope you have gotten to see blue skies and clean oceans. The coral reefs are almost completely gone, which saddens me. I hope there are political leaders who are fighting for the preservation of our forests and landmarks, and if they aren’t, I encourage you to still do your part in saving the world. Your voice matters and voting for politicians who will make a positive change for our environment matters. I am going to use my voice and my vote to ensure the safety and preservation of our ecosystems, and I encourage you to do the same. We are going on a steep downhill decline in terms of the well-being of what used to be such a wide variety of species on Earth. I hope to make this world safer and better for you, and i hope you are still working to save the planet!

Best wishes,

Noelle

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

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.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
