I pledge to avoid using single use plastics and educate others.
More Messages to the Future
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:
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…
If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.
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.
To My Future Child(ren),
The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?
I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.
We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.
