More Messages to the Future
I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.
Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.
Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.
I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
I promise to go DEEP GREEN
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.
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
