More Messages to the Future
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
I promise to be creative – make art!
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
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?
To my dear children in the year 2050,
I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
I will opt up to deep green
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
