More Messages to the Future
My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia,
I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
Dear Future Afnan,
You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
My dear Honeys,
I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.
Dear Before The Flood team,
We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.
People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.
Dear Evie of 2050,
I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.
