More Messages to the Future
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
I promise to never use a plastic straw.
Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.
I love you and I care deeply about your future.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
Dear Future Generations,
I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
Dear Future Family,
As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.
