I pledge to be a conscious consumer.
More Messages to the Future
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 X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.
We need to rethink our consumption habits in order to reduce the impacts on the environment.
Our Shared Promise
I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030
I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.
Dear Future Self,
I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
To My Future Nephews,
I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
To My Fellow Two-Spirits,
Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.
