More Messages to the Future
I pledge to use less plastic.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
To my fellow adventurers,
Don’t stop looking for adventures.
Dear People Of The Future,
It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,
Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.
To My Future Nephews,
I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
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.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
