More Messages to the Future
To My Future Nephews,
I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.
“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older. By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”
When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
Dear future me,
I am 19 years old, and I am angry.
I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
To the future,
Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.
No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050
I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.
The gift for next generation,
To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
