Dear Future Generations,

I’m sorry. I am so, so sorry for everything we have done. And everything we HAVEN’T done. I’m sorry that you will have to grow up in a world without all the incredible plants and animals that are going extinct everyday. We have made irreversible mistakes and decisions that affect you for the rest of your lives. We are only now realizing what we have done and yet so many people still refuse to do something about it. So please, inform yourself and realize that every decision you make will have an effect on everyone that comes after you.

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

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.
