More Messages to the Future
Unfortunately, our selfishness and excessive greed have closed our eyes to the well-being of the planet, and it has suffered the consequences.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.
Dear Ari and Levi,
Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.
I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.
To My Grandchildren,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.
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?
BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”
How can I help you save the world and our country?

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan
I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.
