Dear Tomorrow,

Take advantage of the resources that are available to you. Do not think to yourself that you cannot make an impact because you are only one person. The power of one is greater than the power of none. Start to make environmentally conscious decisions now, so later on you are not telling yourself I wish I had started earlier. Apply that to everything you do in your life, take advantage and live in the moment, so you can live in a better tomorrow. When you first get your license, I know what it’s like to have your friends in the car and you want to drive fast to look cool. It’s not worth it, you’re burning way more gas to only be a few minutes early, at the risk of your own and your friends lives. At one point in your life you will tell your 20 year old broke self, “Damn, I wish I bought a car that didn’t eat up so much gas, so I could have more money to go out with my friends.” Get the environmentally friendly car, it will make a huge difference on your wallet, and you can feel GOOD about where you want to go by knowing you are making an impact!

More Messages to the Future

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear People of the Future,

I want to be a part of the movement of people fighting for a better present and future that we all deserve.

 

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 Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
