More Messages to the Future
Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him
I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.
Dear Children and Grandchildren,
I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
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.
Dear Amara and Uma,
Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)
I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.
My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.
I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
I promise to clean the earth.
