Dear Generations to Follow,

I promise to make conscious decisions toward sustaining the environment from the waste I create to the food that I consume, for thoughtfulness is the first step towards change. Hopefully through the trials and errors of today, you learn from the mistakes that we make now, learn from the lessons we are taught now, and make decisions that then allow for a healthy generation after you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Future Generations,

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

 

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.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.
