To the future generation:

I’m 22 years old and about to graduate from college. It’s been a long journey and I have no idea how it’s going to go from here on out.

There are many changes happening in the world around us. It’s a confusing time because our president and his administration believe that climate change is a hoax, although we all know that is not. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise that will help us come together to make a change because humanity is growing farther apart.

The world is cold but you can help make it better again. Love yourself, love those around you, love the Earth; it’s the only one we have. Stop worrying about things you think are beyond your control and start doing something about them. No voice is too small to be heard. Every action counts. Change starts slowly but it accelerates the more you believe in it and help drive it with your passion. You CAN make the world a better place. Never stop believing in yourself.

I promise I will do everything I can to pass a world on to you that you can live in without fear and with as few problems as humanly possible.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

dear me in 2030,

I am smelling burning plastic!

 

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 Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

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.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
