More Messages to the Future
dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
Dear future self,
I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.
To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,
In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
I promise to go DEEP GREEN
There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.
To you, my dear!
In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.
To my daughters,
In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
To the future generations,
I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.
I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
