To my lovely child,

Today is March 3rd 2017. Right now the time is 10:29 pm in Bangkok, Thailand. You already went to sleep in your dad’s arm.

You might ask why we were in Bangkok. After you were born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, your dad had his internship at UNICEF in Mongolia. We knew that Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution was bad, however, your dad learned more striking information from UNICEF, and when you were 6 months old, we moved out from Mongolia.

I’m sorry, my son, that I could not raise you in your home country. We could have stayed there to fight the pollution, but we love you so much and we decided that we could not stay there while the pollution was extremely dangerous to you. I wish I had the power to change the situation in Mongolia and we could move back there. However, I don’t have that power and I am still fighting the situation and sharing information with others about air pollution and climate change.

I am not sure how will be Mongolia in 2030 or 50. I might be still someone who just gets depressed about pollution and can’t do anything except sharing ideas or I might be someone who is eager fighter against it. Either way, I know I will be someone who fights for truth and correct things and who fights for the future and the children endlessly.

Now, I just want to tell you to always help people, always help the community and never be selfish. That makes you human and that saves humanity.

Love you very much always and forever,

Your mom

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

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.

 

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.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.
