More Messages to the Future
Dear A and C,
You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.
To My Dear Grandchildren,
Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.
To you, my dear!
In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.
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.
Dear Kids of the Future,
My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.
I will encourage composting at work.
I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.
Para minha querida filha, Vitória,
Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.
Dear Great Grandchildren,
If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.
Annalu minha filha amada,
Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.
Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
