More Messages to the Future
I pledge to take the bus.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
The transformation of human consciousness
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.
We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.
I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!
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.
Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,
I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.
