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 Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

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.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.
