More Messages to the Future
Dear kids of America,
Please eliminate plastic everything
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.
Pick up your trash wherever you go!
Dear Valentina & Luis,
You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
I promise to use a water bottle.
I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.
To the Future Generations,
I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,
I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.
To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII. I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
