I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

To my precious children

Today, we had to wash your feet before you could come in the house. The dirt covered your legs and streaked your arms.
This is the childhood you should have. You should not be constantly on the lookout for evidence of pollution. I want your childhood to me marked by peace and beauty as we explore this world together.
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children. So for this reason, I continue to work to get others to see that a day in the sun, playing is far more valuable than all the money that could ever be generated by our wasteful consumerism.
For a future like this my heart aches so deeply. For a clean future that brings freckles on your noses and the smell of sunshine in your hair.

More Messages to the Future

 

To the future generations-

I promise to educate those around me about climate change and the realities that are soon to come, and the ones that are already here.

 

Dear Future Self,

Climate change didn’t happen overnight. It was little things that grew bigger and bigger and we ignored them even as we saw them becoming stronger than we ever thought. That’s the same way we must battle this at an individual level. Believe in the power of change from just one person, because no matter how it feels, we are never truly alone in this fight.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear future me,

Do you have wet feet but miss the rain?

 

Dear Future Child,

I hope to have accomplished many things in relation at helping climate change.

 

Dear Future Me,

Today is November 15th, 2018. The air quality is so bad this week.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.
