More Messages to the Future
Dear Annalyse and Greyson,
See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.
I promise to stop eating junk food.
I will teach my children about a greener earth.
My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.
I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
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 hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
Dear Future Family,
As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
