More Messages to the Future
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 try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.
I will opt up to deep green
Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
Dear X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
Dear Before The Flood team,
We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
Dear Valentina & Luis,
You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
To my children,
I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
