To the next generation,

By now many of you guys probably see the affects of climate change. I have been on this earth for years and unknowingly damaging this planet. College has opened my eyes in realizing that our daily consumption cannot be ignored. The everyday person in this society over consumes or supports huge industries that damage our planet. I hope by the time you read this, there are solutions to the great problems we face. There are trees being cut down just to bring us cheap palm oil! We still cut down trees for paper instead of coming up with an alternative! There are acres of land being destroyed for oil production! I truly hope than years form now our sustainability efforts start to grow.

The planet is a precious and beautiful world and it is a shame to feel like it is hard to save. Unfortunately, I can only do so much to help. People need to realize that although it seems like one person isn’t enough to create change, we are the demand, we can have a say in at least some part of production. There is current political debate about if climate change is real. It seems people think it is possible for places like the poles to just naturally melt or for carbon dioxide to naturally increase in such huge quantities.

To the next person that faces the earth we are leaving now. I say sorry. Many people are still misinformed here in the United States. The people like me who are begging in to be informed, have already contributed 22 years of damage. My hopes is that people can continue to educate others that are not in college to help our earth prevail long and healthy.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

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.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

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.

 

Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.

 

Dear my future loved ones,

I hope that humans can live harmoniously with the earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

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.

 

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.
