“This is the time to stand up and sing for our planet earth, our one true home. ”
Dear Future teachers, students, farmers, politicians, lawyers, nurses, janitors, accountants, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, family members, and friends,
I look hopefully into your lives as you bustle about your morning routine. I see you turning on a hot shower that envelopes you with warm rushing water, heated by your solar thermal. I see you turn the key, or unplug the vehicle that runs smoothly after being charged overnight. I witness your children waving as they harvest carrots, beets, spinach, and chicken eggs from your backyard. As you drive, with your neighbor towards work, the wind turbines twist and the breeze that powers your own home fills the open window, twisting your hair and tickling your face. The sun beats down on acres of Solar panels, blending into the landscape of farm fields that soon turn into skyscrapers. They reach towards the sky, a layer of green blankets the top and in your mind you imagine the farmers harvesting produce just as your children do at home. This is your future my friends. This is the time to stand up and sing for our planet earth, our one true home.
