Dear Daughter or Son,

I always dreamed of a beautiful world for you, where the air is clean as a tear drop and the water pure and refreshing. I always dreamed of a place where people and animals live in harmony in spite of the differences and their inability to communicate in the same language. I always dreamed of a world where humans would support the planet and its treasures and help them to recover instead of exploiting them constantly…

I always wanted you to experience life as it was before it all happened…Before we forgot that our planet is our Mother that feeds us, cares for us and provides us with everything we need. Before we forgot that without our planet; the plants it grows, the animals, the insects, and the soil we would not be alive and would not be able to eat, breathe and develop the way we did…

I always wanted you to experience what I experienced when I was 10 years old and while spending my vacation with my grandparents in a small village in Poland, I was able to drink milk from a cow that was respected and taken care of, not tortured and killed like the cows in todays mass factories…

I always wanted you to not worry about breathing and eating without getting sick or asthmatic or having a lung cancer. I always wanted you to feel safe and happy and feel like you can go anywhere in the world without worrying about being disrespected or not having enough money to survive…

I always wanted you to be healthy and strong and live without a fear of dying from a disease caused by dirty air or water.

I always wanted you to experience a better world where you can grow strong and healthy and have healthy children on your own. A world that would be more compassionate, save and loving. A world that would be covered with flowers and plants not garbage bins.

Therefore, my baby, I make you a promise to do everything I can to make this world better for you and your children. I promise you to be a person who respect animals and cares about other leaving creatures. I promise to do my best to segregate rubbish to make it easier to recycle and reduce waste in the world. I promise you to stop using plastic bags for shopping and start using fabric bags to reduce the pollution. I promise you not to burn plastic bottles or anything that would make the air dirty for your lungs. I promise you to keep my eyes open and educate myself about ecology and the little things I can do to help to save this planet from self-destruction. I promise you to always cherish life, look at every single day of my life with hope. I have the power to change the world for a better place to live….not only for you my Baby, but for your future babies, wives or husbands, for your future best friends, for your future most loved dog, for your future favourite teacher and everyone you love… I love you baby and I will do my best to make this world better for you as you are a part of me. Saving you I’m saving myself…

More Messages to the Future

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dear Leo,

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

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Future Me,

I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
