More Messages to the Future
To the Future Generations,
I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?
Dear future child,
We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.
I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.
Dear Malasher and Alex,
My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
I promise to plant more flowers.
To the future generations,
I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
I promise to recycle and compost.
Dear Emilia and Tommy,
We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.
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!
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
