More Messages to the Future
I promise to stop eating beef.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
My future husband,
I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more
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 My Future Child,
I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
My dear daughters,
I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.
I promise to go DEEP GREEN
