More Messages to the Future
I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.
Dear Future Today,
Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.
Paz e bem
Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.
I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.
To the future,
Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
Dear Future Self,
I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
For my children,
If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
Dear future love,
A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.
We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.
I pledge to use less plastic!
