To my son Gael,

When you were born, my life changed and the future began to make sense. It began to have a new meaning, because the future, before that great moment, was only for me. I had just wanted to be happy with your mom, earn more and more money and be recognized in my professional career.

When you came into my life, my future became your future. And I wish that for your future, you have the same opportunities that I have had, with access to all the simple things that Earth gives us: fresh water, clean air and a safe place to live.

I hope that the actions (changes) that I am making in my lifestyle (mainly, only using the things that I need), will help you to achieve a better future than mine. I long for you to do the same for your children, and for all those around you.

With all my love.

Your papa,

Rolando

More Messages to the Future

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

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

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.
