More Messages to the Future
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050
I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
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.
To the future generations,
I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
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.
I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.
Pour ma famille,
Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.
I will opt up to deep green
I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
Dear future loved ones,
As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
