Dear Future Generations,

I am so sorry. Sorry that your air is impossible to breathe. Sorry that your forests have all been destroyed to fuel corporate greed. Sorry that your town has been flooded. Sorry that you will never see any of the hundreds of thousands of species we sent to the grave. When I was young, you could go outside and walk in nature, find a waterfall, or play in the snow. My generation was given a planet primed for a bright future, a one in a million chance to make intelligent life succeed long term. What did we do with it? Breathe in. Are you breathing fresh air? Are you smelling the scent of the flowers, carried by the wind? No. We destroyed everything we were given. I am so sorry.

Don’t let this be the future.

Fight back.

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.
