More Messages to the Future
I promise to stop eating junk food.
Dear Hailey and Lily,
We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.
Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,
We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.
To our sweet grandson Caleb,
We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.
Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.
I promise to go DEEP GREEN
I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
To my great-great grandchildren,
I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.
I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
