More Messages to the Future
I think a lot about where the right place to live is.
What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.” Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
Dear Generations to Be,
If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.
I promise to stop eating beef.
I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
Dear loved ones in the future,
Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.
Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
Oh My Lovely Faizan,
I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.
I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
