More Messages to the Future
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.
I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,
There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
Dear Owen and Vivian,
Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
To my future Niece,
While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
