More Messages to the Future
Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.
To our sweet grandson Caleb,
We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
I promise to help people! Become more aware!
Dear X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
My darling girls,
I can be brave enough to wake up.
I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more
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.
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
