Dear Edoardo,

We have not inherited this Earth from our parents, we borrowed it from our children.
For this reason we have to save it!

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.
