More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
Dear Future Afnan,
You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.
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?
Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex,
I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
Dear Future Generations,
I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,
We hope we did enough
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’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
Dear Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
To our sweet grandson Caleb,
We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.
