More Messages to the Future
Dear Valentina & Luis,
You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
dear future people (:
I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
To my children,
I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
Pour ma famille,
Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
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.
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.
My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.
Dear future 82-year old me,
29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.
I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.
