More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
I will recycle stuff I found.
I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
Dear Malasher and Alex,
My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
I think a lot about where the right place to live is.
My dear daughters,
I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
