To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
I promise to never use a plastic straw.
Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,
This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.
I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,
Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.
When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.
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.
I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
