More Messages to the Future
Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
Happy 34th birthday my son.
To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
To my future Niece,
While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax
I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.
To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
