More Messages to the Future
Dear future generations,
Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.
My darling girls,
I can be brave enough to wake up.
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.
My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.
Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,
I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.
To all the children of the future and those who love them,
While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.
To my fellow adventurers,
Don’t stop looking for adventures.
Dear loved ones in the future,
Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.
Dear Future Grandchildren,
I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.
