More Messages to the Future
I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
My dearest Paloma Bear,
I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.
My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.
Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,
I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
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.
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
I pledge to use less plastic.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
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.
I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.
The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.
