We promise to plant a new tree in our yard.
More Messages to the Future
To my brother’s children,
We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.
My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia,
I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
The gift for next generation,
To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
To our future generations,
I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.
Dear future family and friends,
This is our house.
Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
To the People in my Future Life,
Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.
I promise to eat less meat.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,
Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.
I promise to plant more flowers.
