More Messages to the Future
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.
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.
Dear Beloved Children,
As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.
I promise to eat less meat.
To future Geof,
Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
Dear Owen and Vivian,
Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.
The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.
Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,
Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
