More Messages to the Future
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.
I promise to stop eating beef.
I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.
I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.
I promise to recycle and compost.
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.
To my future children,
I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.
I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
To all the children of the future and those who love them,
While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.
