More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.
Dear Future Generations,
I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
Dear Future Ryan,
I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.
Dear loved ones in the future,
Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.
I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
I will work to restore the wetlands.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
Dear Kids of the Future,
My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.
To My Children,
Is the world really polluted?
