To my precious children
I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
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 future me,
I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.
To my children,
I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
Salutations to whoever may be reading this,
I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
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 Tomorrow and Dearest Lex,
I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
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.
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.
