More Messages to the Future
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
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.
Greetings 2050 earthling,
Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
Dear Future Generations,
I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.
I promise to use a water bottle.
To the future generations,
I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
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.
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
