Dear Kieara, Suzannah and Alan,

Your Papa spent most of his 40 yr. career working on chemical environmental cleanups including nuclear waste and developing advanced technology, appropriate for the era, for these efforts. I also spent over 10 yrs. working in Russia at dangerous sites involving dismantlement of weapons of mass destruction and helping to safely store and eventually rid our planet of nuclear weapons. This helped I think to make your world a little more safe. However my most important work was after I retired, working with an organization called Elders Climate Action to help organize and combat the effects of climate change. My wish is that due to my small efforts combined with the thousands of our generation who stepped up, your planet is much, much better than it would have been had we not acted and your family’s future is bright and safe from the ravishes of a runaway climate.
Much love,
Your Grandfather Steve

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.
