More Messages to the Future
To My Dear Grandchildren,
Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.
I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
Dear Alex and Vivian,
This is my most important work.
Dear Amara and Uma,
Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
Dear Future Today,
Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.
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 the Future Generations,
I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?
Dear Devon and Chloe
I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.
As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
To My Future Child(ren),
The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?
