To whoever survives to read this,

I’m sorry we failed you, that we started too late to make meaningful change, that we weren’t angry enough to take ourselves out of our insular cocoons and realize we were killing your future.

I’m sorry we let so many species die so we could make our lives easier by driving everywhere, even if walking was an option.

I’m sorry. Don’t forgive us, we knew what we were doing. Just not enough of us cared enough to change our lives substantially, to take this threat seriously, to try and preserve the one world we had.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

Dear Before The Flood team,

We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness
