Dear tomorrow,

These days have been rough with several natural disasters happening in Florida. Some of us do not understand the connections with our footprint in the earth, while others try to reduce our impact of damage in our home. We might not suffer the harsh consequences that you might have to suffer unfairly, and I wish there was a way to reverse that. It is hard to convince everyone that climate change is happening, however, as it is mentioned in the book “The open space of democracy”, it is a never-ending project where the windows and doors remain open. The project has already started, and change is happening in some of us. I really hope that in the future present it is not only a project, but our lifestyle of treating fairly to the only home we have.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

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.

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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.

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.
