More Messages to the Future
I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
Dear Peyton and Lucas,
I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!
Dear future generations,
It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.
I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.
I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
All you can do is your best. You can encourage the same in others. You can admit your mistakes and those of your ancestors. You can learn from them, and help however you can. I’ll do the same. I promise.
You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.
