To my children and grandchildren,

Hello my future family. I hope that you are around to read this message. The year is 2018 and things seem to be rapidly getting worse. The west coast is constantly on fire while the east coast gets slammed month after month by hurricanes and severe snow storms. And yet nobody seems to be taking the necessary action to change these things. Politicians and people we put in power actually believe that climate change doesn’t exist. We have been warned and I myself am fearful of my own future. Catastrophic events occur more regularly and seem to take more and more lives each time. My fear is, have we gone too far? is what we have put this planet through beyond repair? I have to assume that the damage done will only continue to get worse. I cannot tell you to completely change your lives to save the Earth, but I will tell you to be conscience that we only have one and to do small things to change it. I just hope those changes come before it is too late.

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.
