I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

To my Maria and her children,

Hello, my darling. If you are reading this letter, I suppose, it’s too late. It’s too late right now, in 2017. Unfortunately, some scientists are paid to tell there is no global warming. However, you still have to remember that you are the member of global family and you are personally responsible for the future. I hope it’s the time people finally have realised the weight of “green” lifestyle.

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying. We have no money to invest into renewable energy, we don’t even have enough money for food. Although, it is not a reason to stop. We still keep gardening. We grow onion, greens, cabbage, watermelons and pumpkins every year. We use baking soda in cleaning up the house. We make the carpets from the plastic bags and so on and on…

You have to keep in your mind the idea that you have millions of chances to save the planet. And you are a member of society. Even if you are not a leader for all of humanity, you are still part of your family, and you have to serve as an example: grow trees, recycle, live environmentally friendly!

You are not able to change the world, but you can change yourself. Keep on trying, you’re not alone. I am watching you!

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.
