More Messages to the Future
Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
To my future Niece,
While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.
Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
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.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
Dear Future Grandchildren,
I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.
I will use less plastic.
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
Dear Gorasia descendants,
I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.
I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
