More Messages to the Future
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.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.
Dear Finn and Cy,
I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.
Olá minha querida filha Julia,
Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
Hola hijo/a o quizá nieto/a,
Realmente estoy asustado, porque en mi Pueblo, en mi maldito pueblo existe un paraje de páramo extenso, que era diverso, pero ahora las lagunas que existen hay se están quedando sin agua.
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.
