To My Beloved Children,

I was thinking about how to give you a better life in the future. I thought of how to get you to a famous school, how to support you do whatever you want, how to bring you a wealthy life. However, the events in 2020 have changed my thought. I found out that all you need is living a healthy life and grow up in a clean environment to enjoy your childhood like what I had.

Let me tell you stories about what is happening around me now. This is the first time I saw big wildfires in California that stole many people’s life, firefighters’ life. This is the first time I saw an orange sky as the end of the world. This is the first time I cried so much when seeing many floods came and drown houses, animals, and everything. This is the first time your grandma told me she is worried if you will grow up without having a real childhood of playing outdoors. We experienced Climate Change has a huge impact on our lives. It is terrible to say that it is getting worse day by day.

Our effort is not enough to stop the negative impact of Greenhouses gases. I’m so sorry that we unintentionally harm the environment and created a huge impact on your generation. I promise that we will try our best to stop what is happening now. I’m not sure how long it will take to get back what we had in the past, but I really hope we can give you all the best. Also, I hope you will know how important of mother nature as well as protect the environment.

I love you from the moon and back.

 

TB

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

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 promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

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?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

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.
