To “I” before “U”,

You messed up. Yes, you. Not I. I actually assumed responsibility for my actions. I did everything as I should do. I buy local produce, I recycle, pick up litter, I also do my best to bring my own cup to Starbucks for my coffee so I don’t waste a cup. There is no “We” messed up. Nah. Because when you say “We” you are saying “I” didn’t do my part.

I hope you are pissed. I am not saying the following to make you feel good about yourself. I am not a parent by any means and I am not wiser or more intelligent than you. What I am is angry. Angry that people are so stuck on themselves that they choose to not do anything now. This letter is to you. You who thinks their life is the center of attention. You whom judge others but do not look at their own faults. This letter is a reminder of that nagging voice that sits in the back of your mind that guilt’s you for not doing the right thing. I hope this letter reaches “you” now because I may not exist in the future to tell you otherwise.

I want you to always fearlessly swim in water free of pollution and debris.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear tomorrow…

I wish for a world where people can live side by side with people and actually get along.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Next Generation,

The bottom line is we have a world to protect.
