DEAR FRIENDS,

This morning I woke up knowing the world prioritizes economic gain over safety. Today I hope you woke up and didn’t have that feeling. However, I am afraid that this won’t be true, that these materialistic ideals and selfish practices will still be prioritized. I fear the economy and personal gain will take a president over health, over ethics, over the environment. I promise to fight for what I know is right, so that you may live a better life. I promise to advocate, to never give up, never stop fighting; as long as you do the same. Climate change won’t go away until we do something about it. Climate change, for the safety of you, and for people to come, needs to be the number one priority.

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:
