More Messages to the Future
I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.
One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
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.
We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.
Dear Seamus and Tuva,
So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.
Future Self & Ka’iulani,
We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.
Caro me stesso,
Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .
To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
