Dear you,

As you are packing up in Vermont for your internship in Maryland, I just wanted to remind you of your favorite places here. Moss Glen Falls, Honey Hollow Road, Colchester Pond, North Beach, Oakledge Park, Leddy Beach, and the Waterfront.

You have had so many fun memories in these outdoor places. Recently, you just went to Montreal and went to Mount Royal Park just because you wanted some grassy area. Vermont has definitely made you appreciate nature more. It has also made you aware of the climate crisis that is happening. Currently, I am fearful and do not know what to do. I just talked to Dia and Logan about climate migration and how it might be safer to stay in VT or go to Canada in terms of weather and resources. It is also sad how conversations end up in doom for the state of the world.

Right now with Roe vs Wade being debated and everything else going wrong. But one thing is, at least right now you can do your best. I am doing my best to reduce, reuse, and recycle. I am trying to limit my waste and make sure my vote goes to people that care about helping the state of our world.

As for the future, I hope more people are caring about each other and feel safe. I hope people find ways to eat that fill them with joy. I hope for a lot of things. Anyways, I promise to do my best to leave a safe and stable climate legacy but I can’t do it alone. I will educate myself more on the climate crisis and continue activism. I plan to journal more and try to build the future I want to see today.

I hope you stay well and see you on the flip side.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

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.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
