More Messages to the Future
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
To our future generations,
I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.
To the future generations,
I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
Dear Before The Flood team,
We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.
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 Valentina & Luis,
You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
