I promise to talk to my family and friends about the importance of climate change.
More Messages to the Future
Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,
We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.
I pledge to use less plastic!
The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.
The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.
If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.
Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,
Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
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.
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 Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.
Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.
I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.
