More Messages to the Future
Dear Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.
My dear granddaughter Christy,
My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
Future Message to Earth,
Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.
We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.
Dear future generations,
Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.
I promise to stop eating junk food.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
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 loved ones,
As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
