More Messages to the Future
A love letter to my son
I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.
I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.
Dear Future Self,
It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
My Dear Paloma,
I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.
Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,
Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
Dear Future Family,
As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
Oh My Lovely Faizan,
I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.
