More Messages to the Future
I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.
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.
When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.
Isabelle minha querida neta!
Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
Dear A and C,
You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.
My future husband,
I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
To my grandchildren,
Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.
The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.
