More Messages to the 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.
If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.
I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
I will encourage composting at work.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
Pick up your trash wherever you go!
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.
I pledge to take the bus.
dear future people (:
I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
To the future generations,
I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
