More Messages to the Future
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
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
Oh My Lovely Faizan,
I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.
dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
My Dear Paloma,
I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
Dear My Future Child,
I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
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.
I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.
To my grandchildren,
Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
