To My Future Children,

Today, I am a 21-year-old student at San Jose State University studying meteorology. Learning so much about climate change on a day-to-day basis, I am really worried about the future of our beautiful planet. I hope with all of my heart that this issue will somehow get resolved by the time that you are here enjoying all that life has to offer. As of now, the future of our planet depends on what we as people can do to stop climate change from happening. I will do as much as I can to make sure that you have an amazing life. People need to be educated about climate change and realize that if we do not change our way of living soon, the future of our planet will be in jeopardy. I know that climate change is real and it is happening everyday right before our eyes. You deserve to have a safe and healthy place to raise your own family. Today is a very beautiful day in San Jose with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. I hope that as you are reading this, it is also a beautiful day no matter where in the world you are. I am very optimistic about the future of our planet, but I want you to know that I will work hard to make your life as beautiful as it can be. I will get my degree in meteorology, I will get an amazing job, and I will reduce my ecological footprint. I want you to know that I am doing all of those things not just for myself, but for you also. Even though I am not quite ready to have you yet, I love you with all of my heart. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to watch you grow as your mother.

Love,

Madison

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

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.

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.
