To my future dear family,

Every day I struggle to be a better person, for deserving the title of daughter of nature, so that my Mother can feel proud to have me as her daughter. In these 24 years on earth, I have never consciously contaminated; My parents taught me from my earliest years that I should never throw my trash on the floor, that I should turn off the lights every time I left a room, that my showers might be short, that I would not let the water run unless it really were necessary.

I have been conscious with my Mother Earth during these short 24 years. I love the place where I live, I love clean air, to escape, to talk with nature and to feel heard by her. I love the land in the same way that a poet can love its greatest inspirational muse. I admire every day the beauty of the landscapes I have traveled, which I have captured in photos on each of my walks, and I admire each of those landscapes that one day I hope to meet. I would hate every future day of my existence if all that wonder with which I have grown someday disappeared.

I fervently believe in the kindness and respect of the human being for life. That is why I sincerely hope that the world can reason, that you can finish the work that at this moment, the people who love the earth, the ecosystem and every living being on this planet, are doing right now.

I know that I have made many mistakes in my life.  Perhaps I will never be leading or donating large amounts of money to sustain a huge change, but I do my part. I have personally been in charge of speaking and sharing my ideals with many people. I want the world to stop being so selfish, I hope that human beings can stop thinking only about its own species. I want the human race to love every species as if they were brothers, so that the human being can, with his thought, act for those who do not have the capacity to reason, but who have nevertheless shown tremendous superiority to us: animals.

For now I will continue to do my part. I hope that someday, the years give me the reason, all the damage we have done to the planet in some way can reverse. I want my children, grandchildren and all future generations to enjoy everything that exists on earth today. I want us to progress so much and that responsibility for our environment will be part of your DNA.  Above all, someday when I look back I want to feel proud of the person I was. There is still a lot of work to be done and I hope you are the fruit of all that.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!
