More Messages to the Future
Dear future generations,
I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.
I promise to be creative – make art!
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
Dear next generation,
I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,
I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.
To the wonder,
Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.
For a child I am yet to know,
We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.
