More Messages to the Future
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,
I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.
Dear future child,
We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
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.
I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
Dear Future Generations,
I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
I promise to use a reusable water bottle.
