More Messages to the Future
I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.
No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.
We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.
I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.
I promise to never use a plastic straw.
That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.
Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.
To the generation after mine,
But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.
