More Messages to the Future
Dear future generations,
My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.
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 the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,
I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
Dear future me,
My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.
Dear Evie of 2050,
I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
I promise to educate others TODAY.
I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.
To my daughters,
In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII. I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.
