Dear Self,

what if my spirit suffers from my inaction during my lifetime? do i fail to act, leaving it with an eternity of suffering?

since i have to look in the mirror when shaving, what looks back at me in these moments of inactivity? am i not allowing the loss of my soul?

i hope to be motivated by my sense of self as a member of the human race, without using my concerns for my children and their children!

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
