More Messages to the Future

 

Dear family,

I hope the inventors of the world have developed a new way to be human without taking from the natural world we live in.

 

Dear World,

Building the movement starts with ourselves. Continue to love the planet and treat it with the respect that it deserves, others will follow.

 

Dear Meiyun,

I will do some actions from now to help reducing climate change and temperature increasing.

 

Dear Future Me,

I have realized the impacts of my consumption on the climate  especially eating beef.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can by doing as much as I can to help save our world

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

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.

 

Hi future Christine,

I also promise that I will talk about it more with my peers, so they will learn and understand what climate change is.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Finally, I hope nobody is being judged by the color their skin, sexual orientation or religion but by judged by the content of their character.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

One reason it took awhile to write my thoughts here is that I don’t feel that I am being proactive in the struggle to affect climate change. Yet, just thinking about this task over the past several days, has motivated me to shut off more lights, walk instead of jump in the car for a very short trip, and buy more locally.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
