dear future children,

You deserve clean water, you deserve an abundance of food, you deserve clean air. You deserve to see the world in its natural and unharmed beauty.

Right now as I write this our oceans are filling with plastic, the air is contaminated from fumes we pump into the atmosphere, animals are dying because we deem ourselves more important.  The Earth’s climate is becoming so altered we don’t know what to do next.

I want you to know that I never wanted this for you. Our planet deserves to be treated with delicacy and respect, you deserve to understand the value of caring for the environment and the importance of using these tools to fight for environmental justice.

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change, but I promise I’m going to give you air to breathe, oceans to swim, mountains to climb and a planet to explore. I am going to do everything I can to raise you in a world unharmed by our disastrous actions. I promise to do everything I can to reverse the strain we have put on the planet so that you will have a world to call your own.

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.
