I pledge to make my house more energy efficient and better insulated.
More Messages to the Future
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
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.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
Dear future loved ones,
As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII. I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,
People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.
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.
I promise to ride more and drive less.
