Dear my unborn child,

I just want you to know that I tried to make this world for you as beautiful as possible. I did this for you because I want you to be able to enjoy nature like I did as a child. When I was a little girl, my mother would always take me to the beach where I learned to swim in the ocean and enjoy the sound of the waves and the salty feeling on my skin. My grandmother would always take us the local beach in my town. I remember finding a baby turtle on the beach and helping it return safely to the bay. My father always took my siblings and I fishing, and skiing upstate.These memories I will cherish forever, but without nature they would never even exists. This is why I hope you can enjoy the sand between your toes and the ocean breeze, and feel the sunshine. Although there has been destruction, but I hope there is a way humanity can turn it around so you can enjoy the beautiful world you were brought into and part of.

More Messages to the Future

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

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.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
