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 My Future Child(ren),
The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
Don’t use plastic straws!
To my fellow adventurers,
Don’t stop looking for adventures.
Dear Emilia and Tommy,
We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.
I think a lot about where the right place to live is.
We need to work to save our beautiful home.
I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex,
I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
To all the children of the future and those who love them,
While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
