To my Children,

I promise to stay on the path that I have started. One that is to help make sure that you have wild places to see and love. One that explores the absurdity of life and the way that we are all connected. And to make sure that you know the true value of what you can see but not own.

More Messages to the Future

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.
