More Messages to the Future
I love you Earth.
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
Dear Alex and Vivian,
This is my most important work.
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
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.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
To all the people here on earth,
Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.
I pledge to use less plastic!
Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
