More Messages to the Future
I promise to plant more flowers.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
I promise to be creative – make art!
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
Dear Future Self,
I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
To my dear children in the year 2050,
I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
