Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…
If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
Dear grand nieces and nephews,
I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
To my daughter and her children,
As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.
My darling Cassidy,
I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
The world is facing some serious crises right now as Viral pandemic and war situation between Ukraine and Russia.
I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
I promise to educate others TODAY.
