More Messages to the Future
To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,
With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
To my future children,
I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.
I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
Dear future me,
If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.
Dear future generations,
Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.
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?
We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.
I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.
I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.
Dear future child,
We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
