More Messages to the Future
I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.
To future Geof,
Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,
I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.
Dear Future Sami Lee,
Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
Happy 34th birthday my son.
To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.
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.
I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.
For a child I am yet to know,
We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.
Dear You Tomorrow,
What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.
Dear Rowan and Anaka,
If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?
I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
