To my family,

I watch the skies go from blue to grey, as my generation attempts to push back from the faults of what the species has done. I say species because all of us have contributed to the downfall of this planet. As the temperature gets hotter this planet gets more and more unpredictable. She finally said enough once more and I’m surviving a global pandemic. I think to myself is the disease killing us or saving her from us. I say that so selfishly because those with power are likely to survive and those who just are in the crossfire are those most affected.

Even amid this global crisis there’s hope, as people are seen less, the earth partly recovers. I can see hope for when you read this that I will try to neutralize my carbon footprint so whatever harm I omit I can balance it with the good. I start with the products I put into my body to not use any plastic water bottles, start to compost once again, and start growing food in my garden once I am back in my childhood home. Hopefully, the garden is still there for you to see my efforts.

With Love,

J

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

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 Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you got your dream job of using your business degree to reduce co2 emissions and promote sustainable energy.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

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

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
