I hope it’s not too late…

I am begging all of you beautiful souls – continue to band together, keep advocating and making change to stop climate change. My heart aches and is heavy knowing what past generations of our species have done to our amazing planet. And what we are doing now in 2017…  It is not too late.  Go vegan, animal agriculture contributes to climate change more than the entire transportation sector combined. That is the BIGGEST personal contribution one person can make to fight climate change. The next is vote for politicians who acknowledge and want to fight climate change. Be less wasteful, less greedy. Mother earth is our home. Respect your mother. Our mothers are our creators and we need to respect and cherish them. Before it is too late…

I hope you are all able to have clean drinking water. I hope that lions and tigers and monkeys all aren’t extinct. I hope the coral reefs aren’t all destroyed.  Each of you as individuals are very powerful. Remember that.

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

Dear AC,

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear June and Colin,

I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

 

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.
