More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Kids Like Me,
What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.
To my future children,
I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.
Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
Dear Future Sami Lee,
Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
To all the people here on earth,
Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.
Dear future me,
If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.
There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
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.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
