More Messages to the Future
Dear My Future Child,
I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.
Dear Nova and Remi,
I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
I promise to eat less meat.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
I will opt up to deep green
There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
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 promise to clean the earth.
