More Messages to the Future
To my sons,
I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.
I will use less plastic.
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 hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
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.
Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.
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.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
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?
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
to my dearest children,
Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
