More Messages to the Future
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
I promise to be creative – make art!
Dear Kids of the Future,
My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.
I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
Pick up your trash wherever you go!
To My Future Nephews,
I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
Dear Seamus and Tuva,
So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.
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.
To my children,
I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.
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.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
