More Messages to the Future
To the People in my Future Life,
Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.
My Mini & Lou,
Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
dear future people (:
I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.
Stay Cool and Save the Whales
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
Dear Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.
My darling Cassidy,
I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.
I hope that things have cooled down. I hope that people and governments have come together to save our earth. I hope that everyone is able to breath clean air, drink clean water and see the beauty in nature that I do. I promise to do my best to take part in repairing the damage we’ve done so that my hopes may come true.
Dear Alex and Vivian,
This is my most important work.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
