More Messages to the Future
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
To my future children,
I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.
Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.
Paz e bem
Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.
I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.
I promise to take shorter showers.
Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.
I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.
Dear loved ones in the future,
Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.
It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.
To my grandchildren,
Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.
