More Messages to the Future
My Dear Grandchildren,
In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,
We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.
Dear Alanna and Valeria,
I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.
Dear Future Me,
I hope that when we look back on these years, you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?
We need to rethink our consumption habits in order to reduce the impacts on the environment.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
To my Children,
As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.
Dear Future Family,
As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
