More Messages to the Future
I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.
I pledge to stop using plastic bags.
I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.
Dear next generation,
Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.
Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.
Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.
