Dear Future Generations,

I hope you can forgive us. Some of us are really trying to fix the mess that has been created, and I am wishing it will be enough. There is too much greed and corruption in this world, and the power is not in the hands of those who care. The leaders of our nations are not behind us, they are taking care of things they deem to be more important like engaging in wars and building new and improved weapons. They say they care about our safety; they do not. They care about making money. If our leaders cared about our safety, they would be protecting the Earth. Instead, they are focusing on improving ways in which we can destroy it more quickly and efficiently. This is the situation humanity is in right now.

We know what needs to happen in order for us to survive, and people are beginning to listen. We need to adopt vegan lifestyles, stop driving cars, produce less waste, etc. Throughout the world, veganism is on the rise. Although it has had a slow start, support for plant-based diets has taken the world by storm. In my own family, three out of eight of us have adopted vegan lifestyles, whereas three years ago none of us were vegan. Things are changing, I hope it is not too late.

I am trying so hard to protect you. I lead a vegan lifestyle, I refuse to purchase a car (even when it has seemed like a necessity), I attend all sorts of marches and protests calling on our leaders to take action. Will it be enough? I am only one person. I do not know what else I can do, and it is frustrating beyond belief.

I am sorry humanity has borrowed so much from the future that there is so little left for you. I hope it is enough. You deserve to experience a world as beautiful as it is today in 2017. You can count on me to do everything I can to ensure this happens.
