More Messages to the Future
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
I promise to be creative – make art!
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
My Mini & Lou,
Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
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 ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!
As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.
To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
The environment is important – take care of your actions to not destroy it starting from 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 Earth,
I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.
