More Messages to the Future
Less meat, more on my feet!
Dear loved ones in the future,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.
I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.
Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.
My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.
I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

I promise to never use a plastic straw.
Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.
Dear X—, Dear A—,
