More Messages to the Future
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
Dear X—, Dear A—,
I will do everything I have the power to do to free your lives from the mistakes of ours. That is what my love for you means.
Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia,
I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.
We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,
I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.
