While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

To my future Niece,

I am writing to you today. February 27th, 2017, with much hope in my heart. I am sure the world is very different in 2050, but there are certain aspects of the current world that I am going to put my life work towards preserving, so that you and your children may enjoy it.

Your mother and I grew up adoring nature, playing and biking and hiking. It was where our imaginations were free and where we found the purest joy in life. However, where I stand today, there are many things threatening the little bit of true wilderness we have left. Climate change, currently, is just beginning to show its teeth. Biodiversity loss is at an all time high, rising sea levels are washing away island villages. It is February, yet last week I was sitting outside in shorts, enjoying 70 degree weather. The course our world is on today is frightening, and if we do not change soon, I cannot imagine what our planet will be like when you read this letter.

However, there is hope. Amazing discoveries and solutions are created every day. More and more, I see younger generations, such as mine, coming together to fix what our ancestors began. I know that this trend will continue, and I can’t wait to see the amazing ideas that come from people like you. While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving. I look forward to the time I will spend with you our in nature, and hope that someday, together, we will witness humanity as a whole learn to respect and look after the earth, just as you and I do.

Lovingly.

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

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.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
