To my children,

The current date is November 20, 2020. The state of the earth that I am currently living in is concerning in many ways. There have been many forest fires in the past couple of months that have been affecting the air quality, ice is melting due to an increase in temperature resulting in higher levels of water, and deforestation is at an all-time high. I am concerned about the future because if we continue to live the way we have been living I am afraid that there will no longer be earth to live in. A change must happen if we want to change things around and make a positive impact on the earth. Climate change is real and has been observed for the longest time but it is hard to address the topic when the current president Donald Trump does not believe in it. The fight against climate change will be a hard one but won’t be impossible if people want to make a difference. Things I can do to make the world a better place is convincing my family to invest in solar panels, converting lightbulbs to LED’s, recycle things around the house(plastic/clothes), and limit the use of electricity. There is a lot more that could be done to save the earth and people need to play their part if they want to improve climate change.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

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.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.
