Message: Our future foretold and we forewarned. But we changed the future and all thrived forever. We cannot say that we would have changed if only we had known. Our future is foretold and we are forewarned. We will only have ourselves to blame if we do not change and do not build a surviving and thriving future for all. But then we finally understood and changed. Together we built a new future when we all thrive forever on Earth.
