More Messages to the Future
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
Dear future generations,
My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.
The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.
The gift for next generation,
To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
For my children,
If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
To My Future Nephews,
I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.
We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.
Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!
