More Messages to the Future
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
My future husband,
I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
I won’t leave my lights on.
I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
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?
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
Oh My Lovely Faizan,
I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,
I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.
To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,
People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
