To my future self,

I hope by the time of 2050, the world isn’t in chaos. Currently, in the year 2020, we are already seeing the effects of climate change. We’re watching the world we know disappear. Our continental ice is melting and we’re just watching it disappear. Hurricanes are destroying people’s homes and no one seems to care. People are dying, and no one will change their ways because it’s inconvenient.

Remember, sacrifices are necessary to help future generations to survive. When I think of the year 2050, I can only assume the worst. In my mind, I can imagine the increase in wildfires, carbon emissions, rising oceans, etc. With the way things are currently going, I can see change being done but not soon enough to save ice and snow from disappearing in the Arctic. However, I hope that when it’s 2050 we have learned to sacrifice our comfort to help to save the environment. I really hope that when it’s 2050 that we still have some ice left on Earth. Even if the possibility is slim, there’s still a chance for change. There’s a chance that the United States could have changed its ways and lowered their emissions. I want to believe that our peak in carbon emissions is coming soon. If it doesn’t, then I can only assume the worst.

Currently, the United States doesn’t seem to care about lowering carbon emissions. We are the worst globally when it comes to carbon emissions. This is the price we’re paying for living a comfortable life. We need advocates for change. I want and hope that more people like Greta and AOC will come and advocate to stop climate change. I hope that from 2020 to 2050, you are also an advocate to stop climate change. I hope when you read this that you still remember to continue empathizing with others who are in need of help. Don’t turn your back on those who are uprooted from their lands. Be a kind soul, and help them. Even if something doesn’t affect you, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter. Be the change and help others.

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

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.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

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

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
