More Messages to the Future
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
I pledge to use less plastic.
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.
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
To what we’ve overcome.
The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.
Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.
Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
I now feel less overwhelmed and powerless, and I am determined to fight for our planet and your future.
