I pledge to take the bus.
More Messages to the Future
Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.
To My Dear Grandchildren,
Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.
I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.
Dear Beloved Children,
As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.
Dear future generations,
Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older. By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
Dear Alex and Vivian,
This is my most important work.
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:
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.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
