To whomever it may concern,

There are many things that I would like to tell my future self and the new generation about what life is like now, and how much it is going to change in a matter of time. I remember listening to the stories my grandparents would tell me about how society was during their era of existence. In fact, this was the time when automobiles were widely popular! There were many different types of vehicles such as muscle cars, race cars, steam engines, etc… However, this significant innovation that became essential to our everyday lives, is actually negatively affecting our environment. I remember my grandma told me that I could be the change and help this world heal by learning how to save the air quality for the betterment of our existence here on earth.

As I continued on with my education, I was exposed to the issues of how much we as humans are responsible for the pollution in the atmosphere, and how it may put other living organisms at risk of being extinct.

We have the freedom and responsibility to create our own essence. I believe that every action that we do, will accentuate who we are. Now, I promise that you will be the change for the sake of our humanity. You do not have to put in a lot of work to make a difference in the world. It’s the small things that build up and make a huge difference. For example, turning of the water faucet when not in use, unplugging electronics, switching to eco-friendly light bulbs; these are actions that not only will help conserve energy, but it also saves a lot of money as well!

I believe that nature handed us what we needed in order to survive. We need to be grateful and remember that love is possible. If at any time in the future there is not enough love, give back, give love… Without love there is only a matter of time of our existence. If you care about something you have lets say, a house you just bought with all of your money, you would do what you can to take care of it so that it lasts longer. But if not, then it would be damaged and unlivable. I hope you take this into consideration and love where you live.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
