More Messages to the Future
Dear Alanna and Valeria,
I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,
Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more
I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
Dear Finn and Cy,
I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.
Dear Malasher and Alex,
My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
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.
