More Messages to the Future
Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,
I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
Dear future generations,
Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.
I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
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.
No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
To the future,
Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
Dear Gorasia descendants,
I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.
