More Messages to the Future
Dear future loved ones,
As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.
To my future self,
It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.
To my fellow adventurers,
Don’t stop looking for adventures.
I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.
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.
My Dear Paloma,
I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.
Dear future family and friends,
This is our house.
I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
