Dear Alyssa and Johnny,

Hello little cousins. I hope everything is okay. As of now it does not look like everything will be okay. We are consuming fossil fuels at alarming rates, the streets sometimes look more like dumpsters than a place to walk, and people seem to care more about the green in their pockets rather than the green on the trees. Little do they know the green in their pockets will mean nothing once the green on the earth is no more. I am putting my whole future career into trying to help keep the earth healthy for future generations like you guys. I hope throughout the years I will be able to help you guys learn to appreciate the natural world around you and I know your mom will help teach you as well. There is so much beauty in national parks and green spaces that I got to experience growing up and now I hope those will all still be there for you guys when you are a little bit older. I hope my personal goals of diving in the great barrier reef and studying in the tropical rain forests will have come true, and I hope you guys will still be able to make similar goals.

Love, Cassie

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear future self,

You can survive without the latest iPhone but you can’t survive on a warming planet.
