More Messages to the Future
I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.
Dear Hailey and Lily,
We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.
I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.
Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.
To the future generations,
I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
For those who come after us,
This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.
Dear Future Kids Like Me,
What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.
Less meat, more on my feet!
