More Messages to the Future
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

To my children,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.
“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older. By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”
I promise to go DEEP GREEN
I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.
To what we’ve overcome.
The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.
I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.
