To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

Dear Tomorrow, 20th April 2020…………

To my Amazingly Wonderful, Beautiful, Considerate and Un-Conditionally Cherished and Loved Children, I wonder what we all look like since it is 2050. Jordyn, you are the exact same age as me at this moment, 46 years-old! Lauryn, you are getting up there at (almost) 44 Years-Old and My Son, the cute and determined, Braedyn, you are 40 years-old!

I must admit right off the rip, this is a task that is slightly more difficult to write than I had expected. It is something that has more importance and true meaning than just the words themselves however, so for that reason I am putting my all into this letter. It is April 2oth, 2020, but by the time you read this, it will be the year 2050 and this letters context will undoubtedly have a more complicated presence in your communities and in ALL the Earth’s populace.

The issue of Climate Change is something you are very familiar with. It headlines the News daily and we are seeing real effects all around us. The issue is real, and it is here to stay. I can only say to you three, and to all of Humanity that I, for one, am sorry. I am sorry that I did not do more to help. I am sorry that I was not more involved with the issue. I am sorry that the environmental catastrophe and all the strife that is attached, which was undeniably created by my Generation and those before mine, has been thrust upon you. SO…..Jordyn, Lauryn and Braedyn Johnson,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way. Ionically, the one bright spot that I can see, is that it is falling into your hands. I have never known such capable, empathetic, smart and motivated people such as yourselves and your peers. For that, I am grateful. I look forward to the lessons you will teach me on living a more sustainable lifestyle.

The World is still spinning on its axis, and the sky is still pale blue. But there are more clouds that frequent our horizon. And the water rises the winds prevail what is true?

It is your smiles that light my world. It is your hearts that collectively motivate my own heart to beat.

Thank-You for being the ones who will fix this terrible mess.

P.S. I Love you more.

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

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.
