More Messages to the Future
Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
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.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.
I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see
Dear future Child or Grandchild,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
I promise to recycle and compost.
