To whomever finds this letter in 2050,

Hi! Life in 2020 hasn’t really been great so far. Everyone’s been stuck inside for the past month or so due to the coronavirus. It’s not been fun, and everyone is getting a bit antsy being cooped up for a while. Some people believe that this will be the end of the world, but I whole heartedly disagree. From what I’ve seen, when people do end up interacting with one another, they’ve been kinder. The environment is also doing a bit better now that people are off the roads. A lot of people end up recovering from the virus, but because it can hurt the more vulnerable we stay inside. This is very important because it shows that unlike apocalypse movies, real people are far more empathetic and don’t rely on “survival of the fittest”.

I believe that in the future, this time will teach how important the Earth and the people around us are. The world is kind of a mess right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from our mistakes and do our part to help our climate and the world we live in. We should protect the planet we’ve been gifted, and take care of it as best as we can. I promise to walk and bike more places, conserve energy whenever possible, and research more ways I can help combat climate change from home. Maybe it’s the naivety of a fifteen year old, but I believe that if everyone works together to help preserve our Earth, then we can leave a beautiful planet for generations to enjoy. And that is a truly amazing thought to think about.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.
