Dear Future Me (myself & my children),

Ah it is 2021.. 2020 was a very very very rough year for the world, our vulnerable communities, and personally I went through a lot as well. You see I pretty much fit under all that were impacted by past events. 2020 a lot happened, racial injustice was everywhere. Although it has always been, this time the world talked about it. You see personally I went through a lot bc I was suffering from intense headaches that I have self-diagnosed as a response to the evils of the world that have created vulnerable people. What do I mean? We live in a capitalist society where it is very hard to prioritize Mother Nature & our well being…its difficult to serve our communities while taking care of ourselves & it should not be this way. I have hope that the future generations will rise against the world’s human made structures that have led to where we are now..we don’t have to live this way! I know I have hope bc I believe I am doing my best to serve our communities while practicing self care to prepare myself to also serve the next generation (my children & their neighbors) to build a sustainable & just world. I want my children to know that life will not be easy..it was not for our ancestors. The privilege we will be living (bc I am committed to building a safe space for us all) will be a response to the work of our ancestors. Many have dreamt about living comfortably ..I know that is my dream. I hope that by 2050 I will be happy with the time I’ve been given in this beautiful world..I hope that I can make this space for you all as well. I want us all to live at peace with our environments & the people in our spaces. Thank you. Wait lol If you don’t have children I want you to know that is ok! I just hope you find peace within yourself & everyone in your life in 20..?

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Querido amanhã,

Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.
