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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Querida Alê,

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

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

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.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

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

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

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.

 

Meus filhos,

Espero que vcs tb encontrem ,de alguma forma,um caminho para colaborarem com Nossa Mãe Terra, bjs eternos.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
