More Messages to the Future
I promise to ride more and drive less.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
To my darling ones,
And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
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?
I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
Future Message to Earth,
Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.
