More Messages to the Future
My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.
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.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.
My dear Honeys,
I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.
When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.
dear me in 2030,
I am smelling burning plastic!
I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
