Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater. That things have moved so quickly in our lifetimes is overwhelming, but that is no reason to give up. I promise to fight against despair and work to apply my unique skill set to educating and motivating others to take steps to make change for the restoration of our planet. I promise too to exercise my privilege as your mom to help you find ways to feel empowered and impactful in protecting our beloved Mother Earth.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

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 Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.
