Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

I hope this finds you well!

As you know I am doing what I can to help sustain a world where you to can breath clean air, drink clean water, and eat unpolluted food.

I am fighting, unfortunately that is the word, with millions of others against a tidal wave of greed, selfishness and apathy to try to slow down our supersonic frenzy towards the iceberg on our titanic planet earth. We have so many problems to solve: war, slavery, injustice, disease, hunger, and climate change. Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying. Fortunately many of these problems are linked so that solving one of them, for example growing organic food in a public space improves health, solves hunger, poverty, and climate change, all in one.

I hope when you read this, you still have some nature, and all the good things we had, and that you have found a way into a sustainable and happy future existence.

Love from Abba

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Finley,

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?

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

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 Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
