Dear Emma,

You think a lot about how individual acts and lifestyle changes are necessary for people to understand what is they are truly impacting. Research and volunteering can help you to make more positive impacts on the environment, while abandoning old habits that are detrimental to our ecosystem. You want to live waste free, but you can’t convince those around you that it’s possible. It’s the hypocrisy of humanity, but today it’s possible. One thing to remember is that you’ve adopted a way to divert food waste from the landfill and prevent climate change, but what about food packaging! You need to eat more fresh food, not just to avoid food packaging, but also to benefit your health! Another really important part of the environment is education; so many people live their life as if the Earth is disposable, but it’s so much more than that, and since you know and are continuing to lean more and more about the reality of the environment, you can help in bringing awareness. Today, your promise is to prevent waste, promote education, stay healthy, and live sustainably.

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Loved One,

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

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

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
