More Messages to the Future
I promise I will only use renewable energy.
Dear Peyton and Lucas,
I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!
I will opt up to deep green
To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,
With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.
To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,
In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
Dear Future Self,
It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
To my future Niece,
While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.
A love letter to my son
I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.
