More Messages to the Future
I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
Dear little one,
In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
My Mini & Lou,
Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
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.
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 Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)
All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.
Dear Alex and Vivian,
This is my most important work.
