More Messages to the Future
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,
People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
