People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

There is nothing that anyone can do to stop change. Change will happen. It is up to us to try to ensure that change happens for the better and not worse. We’ve made a lot of progress over the last 200 years in making the world a better place for most people but, while doing so, we have also done significant harm to our planet. People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done. I want you all to live in a world at least as beautiful and bountiful and full of love as the one that I’ve been able to live in. So I promise you that I will do what little I can do to help us achieve that. I will make certain changes in the personal life (e.g., I will eat less meat, I will buy energy from companies supporting wind and solar energy). I will talk about climate change. I will reject people who are unwilling to make sacrifices today to help make your world a better place. I will vote and I will vote for people who care about our planet. I think of you always and I have hope.

Love, Trevor

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.
