Dear future child,

Even though I don’t know who you are right now, I can only imagine that you are doing good. Maybe you are flying to school in hover cars or driving some “old” Honda. I’m not really sure how the world is going to look actually. I would like to picture it as some cool futuristic world where everything is made out of glass and chrome. But in reality, I imagine it will look similar but just with new things and technology sprinkled throughout it. Honestly, I just hope it is better.

I really hope we solved some problems for you, so that you don’t have to worry. Climate change is such a large issue that I truly think about everyday. I try to read as much as I can, and educate myself as much as I can, so that I can help and be useful. I hope you will do the same. I feel like it is a person’s duty to save the planet, because if you don’t, who will?

Everyday I try to lower the bad I put into the world and increase the good. I try to be conscious about buying and wasting. I don’t eat meat and rarely eat milk and cheese. I use eco-friendly and homemade laundry detergent. I rarely drive a car and walk or bike instead. I reduce my electricity use and make sure to efficiently use energy. I read and educate myself and others to spread the word. I work in a community garden and use food I plant myself.

A lot of barriers I face are because of my age and lack of experience and time. As a college student I am very underqualified for any higher position to help the world. So I work hard at my personal footprint instead. Also, I know it is selfish, but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day. Somedays I lay down and think, what did I do for the world today? And someday’s the answer is nothing.

But for you, I will make time. Because the earth took all it’s time to give me beautiful nature and animals and seasons. I will work with companies and communities and friends and family and strangers to improve the planet. This means enacting laws and acts in government, changing the mindset of people across the world, changing the capitalist mindset in business. This means working in communities and neighborhoods to creates small legislates that can grow. This means making time and breaking down the stigma that young peoples ideas are somehow invalid.

I plan to graduate college and work for the earth. I don’t mean this literally. Mother Nature isn’t going to dial me into a conference call about the annual budget. But whatever job I’m at or wherever I am, I plan to continually and tirelessly work to improve the planet. For you.

I’m sad we had to deal with other generations problems, so I will do everything to make the world as beautiful and bright and lovely as possible for you. And the rest of the world. The world isn’t some thing you live on, it is something you live with. You treat it with care, you love it. Because it is beautiful.

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
