Dear June and Colin,

It is 2022. The last couple years have been exceptionally difficult and revealing about the present threat of climate change. I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

You two are what give me the courage to move forward and give everything that I can to fight for your futures. I promise to keep working with others who are fighting for climate justice, to keep engaging with political leaders to act for you, and all children who deserve a better future. Yes, I promise to keep doing what we can as a family to live with an eco conscience and low carbon footprint… but I know that’s just not enough when the issues are systemic and political.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

Dear love,

The world is facing some serious crises right now as Viral pandemic and war situation between Ukraine and Russia.

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

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 Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

Meus filhos,

Espero que vcs tb encontrem ,de alguma forma,um caminho para colaborarem com Nossa Mãe Terra, bjs eternos.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.
