To my descendants,

I’m writing to you from 2019. It’s scary right now, kids!  Developed nations aren’t doing enough to combat climate change. It’s bad news left & right. I want you to have a world with clean water, clean air, biodiversity, community health, and the beauty of the natural world. I personally need to do more and as I learn more about what I can do, I promise, I will.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Tripp,

I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

Dear future generations,

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!
