Dear future me,

How you doing? I probably know the answer to that. Good, right? Yeah, that’s what I thought. How’s the planet? Saved? Damn straight. How’s the grass? Green? Well, you can thank me for that. Right here right now, I am promising to my future self that I will help save our planet. Life is too good! I don’t want to stop living it. So, I promise that I will work hard to save our beautiful home. I hope you still love the smell of the fall, the smell of fresh cut grass, the sound of waves washing up on the rocky coast. These things will all disappear unless we save them. Unless we act now! So, I promise that I will act now. I got you.

Love,

You

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

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.
