More Messages to the Future
Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.
Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.
Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,
We hope we did enough
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
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.
I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.
In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.
