More Messages to the Future
My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.
There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).
I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.
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?
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
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.
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.
Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
