Dear Devon and Chloe

I promise not only to be a power of example, and to be there for you always, but to continue to do what I can to make our city “agreenerapplenyc”.

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

I love you both so much, and I want you to have a healthy, happy and hopeful environment to live in.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

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.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
