Dear future,

There is quite a bit going on at the moment. We just had a crazy election cycle, a capitol right, a pandemic, and so much more. However, things are looking up. Although Biden is not going to be our saving grace, he is much better than the alternative. With only two weeks in office, he has pretty much done more in that time span than the last four years.

First of all, if we learned one thing in 2020, it’s that we need to trust science and the facts. As I write this, 447,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus since March of last year. If we had a leader who had taken this threat seriously and listened to science, that number could have been far less. If coronavirus is still a lingering thing in the future, follow the rules. Wear a mask. Avoid close contact. You will be happy that you did.

In general, it’s important to think about how your actions will affect the future, especially in terms of the environment. We have been added back to the Paris Agreement, but real change comes from individual citizens. Strides have been made with banning plastic bags and reusable water bottles as well as recycling, but there is still more to be done. One positive that has come out of the pandemic is that people have been channeling their innovativeness and creativity. I think that people will come up with more reusable or recyclable products to slow the toll on the environment.

Lastly, it is important to enjoy the world. We only get so much time with it, and although there are negatives (especially now), it is still a wonderful place. Go out and try new things, and see new places. This is how we actually learn and develop ourselves.
