Dear future child,

Sometimes, I think about your future a lot. But not in the sense of what you’ll grow up to be- maybe an astronaut, teacher, fashion blogger? I think about what this world will look like for you and what consequences your generation due to the negligence from previous generations. Will this world be a better place? I sure hope so.

You will know I was born and raised on the West Coast, specifically the San Francisco Bay Area, and that I grew up with droughts and dry hills and bush fires. I’m not sure what this place will look like in the future, but I hope the beauty of the Bay is not ravaged by climate change and receding coast lines. I hope you can see the beauty that I have seen, I want it to be preserved for you and your children and your children’s children.

So I’m trying my best to incite some sort of change. Right now, in 2017, I have decided to educate myself more on sustainability and I have a desire to change my wasteful habits. For now I am some sort of novice, I’m not studying environmental science and I continue to contribute a lot more waste than I am aware of.

But I hope I will be able to read this letter with you and see the progress I will have made in transforming my impact on this planet. I hope to provide you with faith in humanity. We can create change if we use our voices. Don’t be afraid to use yours.

I will end with one last hope for you. I hope that you will see the earth and its beauty but also the wonderful communities people have built in working to save it.
