More Messages to the Future
Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…
If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
Dear Future Afnan,
You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.
Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,
I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.
My future husband,
I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.
I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.
Dear Seamus and Tuva,
So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.
Dear Rowan & Tristan,
I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
