To the Denizens of the Future,

I’m half-surprised, really, that a digital time capsule like this even made it to you. So many things could have gone wrong. The world’s ecosystems could have collapsed. Someone could have started nuclear armageddon. Maybe nobody uses emails in the future. Regardless, it made it, and someone may or may not be reading. To the reader,

This is your freshmen-year-college self. Society as a whole is beginning to realize that climate change is a serious threat, despite all of Donald Trump’s reassuring us that it is not. The 2020 election is fast approaching, and I’m eager to see if the Commander in Queef will be re-elected. The fate of the world climate may depend on it.

I’m a pessimist, so I’m inclined to believe that this message won’t reach you, and that if it does, our climate will be destroyed. But on the off chance that everything is nice and happy in the future?

Nice. Cheers!

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

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.

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
