More Messages to the Future
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
To my dear son,
Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
Dear Valentina & Luis,
You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
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:
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
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.
My dear granddaughter Christy,
My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
