More Messages to the Future
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.
Dear Alanna and Valeria,
I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

To my daughter and son,

Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
To My Future Self,

dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
