Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

Dear Tara,

I want you to know that while much of the world twiddled its thumbs and scratched its pointy head about whether humans could really have an impact on the climate, I was working every day to make your future life a little bit easier. Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day. I say this not to blow my own little horn but to convince you of how deep my love is for you and those who will share your world when I am but a memory.

I love you, Uncle Tim

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
