More Messages to the Future
And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
Dear next generation,
I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth
Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.” Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,
I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.
Dear Beloved Children,
As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.
I will recycle stuff I found.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
Dear Evie of 2050,
I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.
