More Messages to the Future
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
Dear Owen and Vivian,
Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.
Dear next generation,
Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.
And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
We need to work to save our beautiful home.
Dear My Future Child,
I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.
We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.
To my daughters,
In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
The transformation of human consciousness
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
