More Messages to the Future
My dearest Paloma Bear,
I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.
Dear future generations,
Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.
It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
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.
Dear Potential Future Kiddo,
To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating. Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.
I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)
I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.
To all the children of the future and those who love them,
While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.
Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,
This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.
