Dear Kids of the Future,
My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.
Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.
Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
Dear Emilia and Tommy,
We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.
My dearest Paloma Bear,
I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.
My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.
My dear granddaughter Christy,
My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
I promise to change the culture of my school.
