More Messages to the Future
Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,
I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.
Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.
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.
Dear Gorasia descendants,
I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.
I love you and I care deeply about your future.
Dear Future Self,
I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.
I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
Dear future family and friends,
This is our house.
Dear Finn and Cy,
I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.
