Hey you,

Hope you’re doing good, do me a favor and look outside please. Now we have blue skies and nice wispy clouds, the earth is changing, summer’s coming earlier then it should. I’m writing this during the Covid-19 pandemic, global Co2 emissions have gone down. We are the virus. Please try to live more responsibly.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

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.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
