More Messages to the Future
But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.
To the wonder,
Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.
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.
I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
To My Grandchildren,
It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures. These are the confessions of a climate activist:
As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.
My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030
I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.
I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.
