More Messages to the Future
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.
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
Para minha querida filha, Vitória,
Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
To our future generations,
I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.
