More Messages to the Future
I won’t leave my lights on.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
Dear future me,
If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.
I promise to change the culture of my school.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
I promise to drive less and walk more.
To the Future Generations,
I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?
I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.
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.
Our Shared Promise
I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.
