I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
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
I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.
Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,
Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
My dear granddaughter Christy,
My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
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.
Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.
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.
To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,
There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
