More Messages to the Future
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?
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.
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,
Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
Dear Future Me,
I hope that when we look back on these years, you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
Dear people of The Future,
