Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

Protecting fragile ecosystems that sustain life is like caring for children and grandchildren. It requires time, attention, and love.

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere. My hope is that choices, actions, decisions, policies, and plans will be based on knowledge, scientific facts, respect for the natural world, and appreciation for the natural order of our beautiful planet.

My dream is that you will someday watch and chase whales as I did, rather than only seeing images of great creatures that became extinct. And although plankton are not great creatures, they also are unique and beautiful; their survival depends on a reduction in ocean acidification, and our ability to survive depends on their survival. Everything is connected.

I am a better person because I love you. I want the world to be a better place for you. Our planet is precious – just like you. I promise to practice choices that value people and the planet over profit. I make this promise to you.

Love, Nana

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.

 

Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!

Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Martje,

I promise to do my best and raise my voice to ensure a better future for you and our future kids!

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.
