Dear sweet planet Earth and future child,
To my future children,
Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.
To my children,
I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
To what we’ve overcome.
The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.
I pledge to take the bus.
I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
To the future generations,
I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
I will work to restore the wetlands.
The transformation of human consciousness
I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,
I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.
