More Messages to the Future
Dear Kids of the Future,
My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.
People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
I promise to plant more flowers.
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.
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.
The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.
To my daughter and her children,
As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.
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.
