More Messages to the Future
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
Caro me stesso,
Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
