Vitória,

Minha linda filha, papai gostaria de lhe pedir uma coisa muito simples mas que pode fazer a diferença para você e outras tantas pessoas que habitam o planeta Terra. Então, vamos lá: 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. Isso é a preocupação de um pai que quer ver o seu amor viver bem e mais: você! Para tanto, outros tantos amores de pais espalhados mundo à fora, também poderão ver seus respectivos filhos bem em nossa casa Terra.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

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.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
