To future self,

Today we live in a world that revolves around money and power. Those who don’t have these two privileges lack a voice to be heard. As life on this planet exists today, nature is slowly but progressively disappearing. Certain species are becoming extinct, sea levels are rising, and temperatures are increasing at an exponential rate. This is clearly a problem but why do people not address it? Yes, there are many problems occuring in the world right now but is climate change insignificant? How can these so called “more important” issues be addressed if there is a possibility of no tomorrow?

I hope you are living in a better, cleaner world. I hope people have realized that we are the ones causing the problems that we claim not to be ours. I hope endangered species such as pandas and tigers are growing in number. Lastly, I hope we convert to a renewable energy world.

More Messages to the Future

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

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.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

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 change the culture of my school.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.
