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.

Dear Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear future,

I pray that ice caps melting and sea levels rising won’t be so much of an issue as it seems.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Shannan,

I hope by now you have figured out a healthier, more efficient way to live.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear grandchild,

It was in this small town that I forged a passion for our Earth – a wild desire to devote my life to protecting its depth and width.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
