Dear wonderful children and grandchildren,

I would like you to appreciate the Earth and all the resources we take for granted now. We will all need to be better stewards of this fragile planet so that you can appreciate them as I do. In the past humans thought Earth’s bounty was endless. Not so. We need to stop taking more from Earth’s limited resources than we give back.

Grandpa

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

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.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

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.
