Dear Tom and Leena,

First of all, Tom, I love you and I miss you so much. A lot has happened since you’ve left us and I think about you every day. I just want to thank you for encouraging me to come back to school and to live a life of true purpose. You have always been my inspiration and my rock, and for that, I am so grateful. I promise to continue to grow as a person and to always stay passionate and active in what I care most about; this beautiful Earth which we are so lucky to call our home. I wish you could see how much I have grown in the year since you’ve passed away. Not only have I delved completely into my studies, but I’ve even started volunteering with the local park service. Because you know me so well, I know that you would be so proud of me for overcoming my depression and anxiety. Moving forward, I want to always continue to make positive changes in the world. Literally, everything I do, I will be thinking of you looking down on me, with all the positive vibes in the world. You were the one person who “got me”, and I will always remember fondly our talks at midnight which lasted for hours. I was once scared of the future, but I’m learning to be more and more optimistic. There might be a lot of bad in this world, but I refuse to give up and let the forces of evil win this fight. This is my promise to you.

And to my beautiful niece, Leena; you are literally the future. You are the smartest, most brave little girl I have ever met. The world needs more amazing people like you. I’m so sorry that your Daddy had to leave you so soon, but I know that he loves you more than anything and is so proud of you. We all are. All I want is to help make this world a better place for you. Your love for animals is so beautiful, and I know how important it is that those same animals are still around when you’re my age. The world can sometimes seem big and frightening, but with your courage and strength, you can overcome anything. I wish I could take all the pain that you and your Mommy feel and bury it within myself. But since I can’t, I vow to always fight for a future that will continue to inspire you. 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.

I love you two so much, my guardian angels, always.

More Messages to the Future

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

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.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
