More Messages to the Future

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.
