More Messages to the Future
Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,
I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
Dear fellow human,
May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,
Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.
I pledge to use less plastic!
To my dear son,
Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
