More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Maya,

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 Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.
