To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.  Maybe I’ll live to 2046 and see for myself. I hope we haven’t left you in a wasteland of pollution and you are thriving. Please know I loved you and tried my best. May all your dreams come true.

I worry quite a lot about climate change.  I reuse, repurpose, recycle & live a simple life. There are NO REASONS to not be responsible. I sign, donate & tweet to reach out.

I plan to be a part of a transformation of society, where compassion and empathy become the norm. I think we can all live simply, make friends and find a purpose. There is nothing you can’t do if you give it your best shot everyday.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Rosie,

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.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.
