The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Alan Kay
In the science fiction movies, the future is always dark and bleak. Somehow, we’ve managed to destroy every living thing on the planet, and a few solitary people eek out a meager existence in the midst of terrible violence.
Well, I think that future sucks. Moreover, it doesn’t have to happen like that– not if we don’t let it.
If you want to predict what the future will look like, then look what we’re doing to create it. If we give our time and money to address the roots of economic, social, and environmental injustice, then we can invent a future that is bright and beautiful. We can create a future where a child, no matter where he/she was born, lives a healthy life, receives an education, and prospers economically. We can create a future where our rivers run with clean water and the air that surrounds us is pure. We can create a world where we all live in peace.
That’s the world I want. And the best way to create that future is to give our time and money– right now! The future is coming.
