More Messages to the Future
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
Dear future me,
I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

The world is facing some serious crises right now as Viral pandemic and war situation between Ukraine and Russia.
