To my future grandchildren,

One of my favorite things about living in San Francisco is the people there. We have a diverse community that promotes tolerance and acceptance. I could not see myself calling anywhere else my home.

California has a history of drought, and global warming plays a heavy part in that. If global warming were to continue, business as usual, our home would not be the same as I remember, and you would not be able to experience it.

I hope that we could manage our impact on climate change, so the beauty of our city can be maintained for centuries.

I promise to take the steps in my life to lower my ecological footprint, and lead through example. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my favorite hidden spots.

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.
