Dear Isaac,

I am hoping that you are living in a happier and healthier time and place than we are now.  The world has probably had some major changes since you were 10. People are smart and creative, and hopefully, by working together as just people of the beautiful earth, solutions have been found to curb expected calamities brought on by climate change.
 
You probably remember how crazy I was about  “going solar”, driving my EV, and picking up every bit of plastic in our path.  Alone it couldn’t change the world very much, but combined with others I am hoping it counted. I always feel we can do better, (you know like  “practice longer”)  so today I am promising to take 2 more actions which hopefully,  by modeling and combined with the actions of others, will help preserve this wonderful earth for you and your children ( I hope at least one has your beautiful smile.)
 
July 25, 2020:
* I  promise to eat a minimum of three meals a week with no meat in an effort to switch to a more plant-based diet.

*I promise to make my climate action voice heard louder and to help my friends to do the same by advocating physically and verbally for necessary bold legislation on the state and federal levels.

 

Love you always,
Jima

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.
