I pledge to use less plastic!
More Messages to the Future
dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
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.
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?).
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
Para minha querida filha, Vitória,
Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.
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?
“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.”
Pick up your trash wherever you go!
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.
