Ioanna,

You are only 8 months old but already you are curious about, excited for, amazed by and in charge of the world around you. Every week, I’m startled by how much you understand. I know it won’t be long before you ask me about the planet – how big it is, where it came from, where it ends, and how it works. I won’t have all the answers — I might not even have a tenth of them. But I promise you, we’ll find out together. And when you ask me about what we did about climate change before you were born, I don’t want to disappoint you — because I knew. We knew. I’m ashamed of how we’re managing climate change now, but how about this? If you push me and I push you, we can both make sure that by the time you’re my age, you’re proud to tell your daughter how we fought back together – and did everything we could (and more!) to make the world better for her.

Love you always,
mama

More Messages to 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 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.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

Dear Future Children,

Small steps is the best start, and I hope you will take larger steps than I did.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

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.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

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 my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
