Caro futuro,

è una sera come tante altre e mi ritrovo qui a pensare come sarai.

Ora ho “solo” 18 anni, ma effettivamente mi sono resa conto che il mondo così non può andare avanti, grazie alla scuola che frequento sto imparando tante cose sull’ambiente che mi circonda e spero di proseguire i miei studi in questo campo.. chissà magari avrò la “fortuna” di assistere e partecipare ad un cambiamento più pulito del mondo.

Mi sentirei un’ipocrita a dire che faccio molto, ma nel mio piccolo ci provo, a differenza di molti ragazzi della mia età.

Non lo so cosa aspettarmi da te, cerco sempre di non crearmi aspettative, godiamoci il momento e facciamo quello che possiamo e se sarà qualcosa di bello, la meraviglia può solo che aumentare.

Oltre ai problemi climatici, decisamente gravi (pensa che questo è l’inverno più secco da non so quanti anni), tutte queste guerre mi preoccupano davvero molto, per non parlare delle discriminazioni.

Spero tanto di ritrovarti “più pulito e pacifico”.

piccoli pensieri di una diciottenne vicentina,

5 marzo 2017

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear Daughter,

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.
