More Messages to the Future
To my Kids,
I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,
I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.
Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.
I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
To my brother’s children,
We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
To the People in my Future Life,
Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
