To My Beloved Children,

I was thinking about how to give you a better life in the future. I thought of how to get you to a famous school, how to support you do whatever you want, how to bring you a wealthy life. However, the events in 2020 have changed my thought. I found out that all you need is living a healthy life and grow up in a clean environment to enjoy your childhood like what I had.

Let me tell you stories about what is happening around me now. This is the first time I saw big wildfires in California that stole many people’s life, firefighters’ life. This is the first time I saw an orange sky as the end of the world. This is the first time I cried so much when seeing many floods came and drown houses, animals, and everything. This is the first time your grandma told me she is worried if you will grow up without having a real childhood of playing outdoors. We experienced Climate Change has a huge impact on our lives. It is terrible to say that it is getting worse day by day.

Our effort is not enough to stop the negative impact of Greenhouses gases. I’m so sorry that we unintentionally harm the environment and created a huge impact on your generation. I promise that we will try our best to stop what is happening now. I’m not sure how long it will take to get back what we had in the past, but I really hope we can give you all the best. Also, I hope you will know how important of mother nature as well as protect the environment.

I love you from the moon and back.

More Messages to the Future

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

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

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.
