To My Wonderful Grandchildren,

First off, I just want to say that I love you all so very much. My life was not easy and I worked very hard to make sure I set a humble example for you all. I hope you all do the same for your children and grandchildren to come. As of right now, climate change is continuing to cause mistreatment within our environment, social and cultural barriers and political apprehension. However, in order to make change we must lead by example and realize that “We do not inherit this earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” We must show unselfish concern for the welfare of others. With that in mind, I have taken the initiative to do what I can to prevent environmental havoc on our future by having compassion for our home and taking the time to educate others on doing the same. I pray that you do the same for your children and encourage them to do better than we have. Many people will mock you, but standing up for the truth and what we believe in holds true value. Pay no mind to the ignorance of others because in the end, they will understand when it is too late. This earth is our home, so let’s keep it that way.

Love,

Maliah Kenoly

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To all the people here on earth,

Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”

How can I help you save the world and our country?

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

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.
