More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Generations,
I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
Dear Me of 2050,
I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.
Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,
We hope we did enough
Dear Rowan and Anaka,
If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?
Dear Potential Future Kiddo,
To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating. Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
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.
Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.
Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
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.
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
dear future people (:
I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.
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.
