Queridos netos Beatriz e Noah,

No dia em que vocês receberem esta mensagem a vovó Laura estará pulando sobre as nuvens deste céu que vocês olham e sentem a amplitude. Como eu disse a vocês estarei ali observando e admirando suas atitudes. Espero que tenham aprendido a melhor conviver com o mundo e, em especial, com a natureza. Desejo que estejam contribuindo para uma atmosfera saudável e agradável, e que todos estejam contribuindo para a redução da poluição e, consequentemente, para o equilíbrio do planeta. Que as árvores, os rios, a terra estejam recebendo a atenção que precisam para dar sustentabilidade aos seres vivos. Que os homens tenham contribuído para a “freada” do aquecimento global – uma ameaça terrível no tempo da vovó. Há pessoas empenhadas numa mudança de atitude. Espero que, quando vocês estiverem lendo esta mensagem as pessoas já tenham entendido que qualquer ação, por menor que seja, em favor do meio ambiente muito contribuirá para o futuro. Enfim, desejo ardentemente que vocês possam estar respirando um ar puro, comendo alimentos saudáveis e bebendo água cristalina e que saibam o quanto é importante tudo isso ser preservado. Com amor. Vovó Laura

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

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 Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
