More Messages to the Future
No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
Dear future niece or nephew,
We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.
To my grandchildren’s children,
I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
To our sweet grandson Caleb,
We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
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.
