More Messages to the Future
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
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”.
I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.
I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
For those who come after us,
This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.
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 switch from “light” to “deep” green.
Dear Rowan & Tristan,
I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
