Dear Alanna and Valeria,

Your mom has tried. Those nights she’s left you to go to meetings on climate change action and wasn’t there to put you to bed, your mom was trying… I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future. I am sorry I brought you into this, please forgive me. But please now that I love you and I am trying!

-Michelle

More Messages to the Future

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
