Dear family and myself, or whomever will read this who has impacted me life dearly,

The world is supposed to be a working progress, but not much progress is being made currently. Climate change is taking a huge toll on the planet and yet not everyone believes it. Temperatures have risen immensely within the last 5-10 years and yet some people are focusing on the last 25 years, saying that the temperatures have remained constant. They think that human activities are not the reason for climate change. They won’t even acknowledge the problem, but the evidence is everywhere. They are living in it. I assume the environment in the life you are in right now isn’t that great. The problem still hasn’t changed much, but I am hoping more people have transitioned to hybrid and electric cars more. The air is getting worse and smog is taking a toll on the communities health. You may agree with what I am saying, but I hope you are accounting for your actions as well because everyone is responsible for this issue. I hope you are doing well and trying to make a difference/impact in the world and to the environment. I know it may be hard to due to convenience, but little differences also make a huge impact. Remember that.

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

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.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

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 Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
