More Messages to the Future
My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.
But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.
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 my future self,
It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.
To future Geof,
Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
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.
Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
Dear Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.
Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.
Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,
Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.
