Dear Loved One,

It breaks my heart seeing how quickly global warming is growing and growing, leaving an enormous effect in our planet. I hope that there is still some of the beautiful world left for you to admire and cherish. I hope that little by little everyone will have made a positive change in the world. Today, I am blessed enough to enjoy all four seasons but will they forever exist? Global warming is only increasing and as a result, we have been experiencing big hurricanes in the East Coast. Thankfully, scientists have been able to detect most hurricanes before they occur in order to evacuate people out of danger. Global climate changes can cause irregular weather patterns that can prevent scientists and researchers from preparing for natural disasters. The greener environment we create, the better the Earth will be. It is up to you to make the world better. You will not change the entire world by yourself but you must take that first step in order for others to follow. Just simply wearing more layers during a cold season will diminish the amount of electricity you use, a step closer into saving this world. I hope you, along with others, are able to leave the planet better than how it was prior and above all, experience a world that God has intended for us to enjoy. This includes a sunny summer and a cold, snowy winter all balanced perfectly and a great amount of land that can be used to plant and enjoy food without fear of health effects such as contamination. Take care of the world, you only get one.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.
