More Messages to the Future
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
For a child I am yet to know,
We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.
Dear Finn and Cy,
I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.
Dear Future Sami Lee,
Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
To My Future Child(ren),
The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.
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.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
To my children,
I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
