To my beloved children,

I am so glad that you are reading this message. I hope that you are leading a wonderful life on planet Earth without many problems. When I was the school I learned about how climate change was increasing and that if we didn’t attempt to make changes, the future generation will not have a better place to live. Therefore, as a citizen here are the things that I considered or made changes as a family so you could have a better future. Make sure your house has solar panels on the roof, try to dry your clothes in the backyard instead of the dryer, use an electric car, avoid eating beef, grow more plants, and do not waste water. These are the small changes that you can make in your lifestyle that will contribute and make a difference. Please pass this on to your children so they could continue to keep the Earth cooler and livable for future children.

More Messages to the Future

 

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 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?

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
