Dear Aurora,

I have devoted my life to trying to alter the course of our civilization because I want not only you to have the chance for a long and full and good life but because I want this glorious world we are all a part of to live. There are so many moments when it feels like we’re just not going to change in time, but the terrible danger we face drives me onward. I cannot let myself become despondent, immobilized by despair. I rest my faith in the knowledge that, though it is most definitely too late to make things “all right,” it is not too late to make things better than they otherwise will be – and maybe, just maybe, a whole lot better. I hope I live to celebrate that Great Turning with you when you see this.

Love,

Uncle John

More Messages to the Future

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

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 Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

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 Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.
