More Messages to the Future
Dear future loved ones,
As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,
To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
Dear Me of 2050,
I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.
I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
We need to rethink our consumption habits in order to reduce the impacts on the environment.
Dear Evie of 2050,
I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!
Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,
We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
