Dear Josh,

When you read this I hope you have lived up to your goals in life and are happily married with children hopefully. Remember how big of a deal climate change was? Do you remember learning about fall semester sophomore year in your Global Environment class? You appreciate Earth as much as Mrs. Dahl did, you have always found happiness in the natural environment. I hope that people started realizing by this point how important saving our climate is so unbelievably crucial to the survival of the human race. I can only imagine what the world has turned out now, 30 years later. When you read this Josh I hope you have done this one thing, help make our planet a cleaner and safer place so that your ancestors can enjoy the natural gifts this planet provides for us.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

 

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.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.
