More Messages to the Future
Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
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.
My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
I will work to restore the wetlands.
Dear future niece or nephew,
We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.
I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.
I promise to stop eating junk food.
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,
In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
