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!

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Meus filhos,

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Donatella,

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

 

Dear Leo,

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

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

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.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
