To My Family,

It is 2019 and climate change, sea level rise, over population, high rates of consumption of natural resources and single use products are major topics of discussion. I have reduced my use of single-use plastics by using silicone, metal and paper straws as a substitution. I have quit buying bottles water and invested in a PURfilter. I am taking small steps in my daily life in an attempt to improve the quality of life for future generations and our Earth. I try to share my opinions and ideas with you all in hopes that you will see the small impact that you can have on reducing the unsustainable ways of the world. I promise to continue taking the small steps that hopefully lead to a big change.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Bella,

I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.
