To humanity in the 22nd century,

How are you? Are humans still torturing the earth? Are they still capitalizing on everything for the sake of money and not considering how the future generations are going to live in this catastrophe? Are they still oblivious that not only big corporates and governments, but their own everyday actions will affect the future of humanity dramatically? Are they still considering -or in the process of- moving to Mars instead of taking care of their own home, their own planet they were born in? I have a lot of questions; however, at the same time a lot of hope that humanity is stepping in the right direction, by not only advocating about conserving our planet to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide from big corporates, but also by changing their small habits for the better. Habits that I myself have been trying to incorporate into my life, including cutting back my waste by repairing and reusing clothes and avoiding throwing away food, using energy wisely, and using less plastic to lower my carbon footprint. Even if no one will answer my questions, I would like to think that humanity will become aware of the problems we are causing and quickly step up and take action.

Sincerely,

Your 21st century human.

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Birds,

will continue championing land preservation and the restoration of woodland, prairie and wetland habitats. I will not stop advocating for “bird friendly” legislation to make cities safer for your passage.

 

Dear people of The Future,

Thank you for reading. Do your part to save the globe.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Child,

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

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.
