Dear adventurer,

I’m writing this letter in Chicago, Illinois on November 7th, 2016, one of the warmest November days I’ve ever experienced. Weather patterns and temperatures have probably gotten more intense for you, but I hope that through it all you’ve been safe and comfortable despite the difficulties. Climate change is something that’s been on my mind for a while now – a few years ago, I got interested in environmental science, and have since declared a major in environmental studies. I’ve been vegetarian for two months and don’t plan on stopping, and have had countless conversations about the importance of sustainable practices. Days upon days have been spent outdoors and in nature. All of this is due to the appreciation, respect, and awe I have for our planet and its natural wonder, in all of its capability and beauty. I hope you feel the same way. Nowadays it seems like there aren’t many people who care enough to drive the communal change we need to have a big enough impact, but I’m optimistic that they’ll come to their senses one way or another. I guess you know if they did. Personally, I’m working on reducing my ecological footprint by any means possible and will continue to do so over the next five years. So far the biggest lifestyle change is the lack of meat eating – hopefully bigger ones are to come, for me and others. It is my hope that the world will be able to come together over this issue, and that this letter reaches you as the world finds success together. We’ll see.

All the best,
Alex

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.
