I promise to disrupt and to use my community to create change.
More Messages to the Future
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

I promise to never use a plastic straw.
I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET
I will encourage composting at work.
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.
I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.
Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him
I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
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.
I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.
