Queridos filhos,

Escrevo essa carta no dia 08/11/2015, possuo 14 anos e ainda não sou formada e nem tenho filhos, mas como assim? Esse ano no Brasil estamos enfrentandos algumas mudanças, como a seca em São Paulo, moro no Rio e mesmo assim aqui pode passar por isso! Eu me dei conta de que um bem tão precioso como a água pode acabar, a gente sempre aprende isso e mesmo assim não fazemos nada pra mudar, porque simplesmente não nós afeta! Nesses últimos tempos, passo menos tempo tomando banho. Nossa tecnologia avança cada vez mais e ninguém para pra pensar o que acontecerá sem água. Eu sou muito nova e mesmo assim sempre penso no que posso fazer. Hoje é um ótimo dia pra começar a fazer a diferença, dizem que nós temos que ter 3 coisas pra nossa vida ser completa: plantar uma árvore, ter um filho e escrever um livro. Espero que eu consiga ter os 3!

Beijos do passado! {Anexei uma foto minha, vai que vocês querem saber como eu era ;)}

More Messages to the Future

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

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.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

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.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Maddie,

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.
