Dear future generations,
Hello future generation!
I hope that you all have not suffered from my generation’s as well as earlier generation’s anthropocentric ways. I hope that life is being lived similarly as to how it is in 2021, but with a few exceptions. I hope we have convinced everyone that climate change is in fact real and how important our amazing planet is for the well-being of humanity as well as all of the other beautiful ecosystems. I hope people have taken the time to learn more and connect with our loving planet. Additionally, I hope people have taken the initiative to combat climate change and have found more sustainable ways to live, such as switching more farms to regenerative agriculture and using renewable energy instead of fossil fuels. I hope you have been able to see whales, and other currently endangered animals. I hope your weather has been cool and calm and that you have not experienced as many intense natural disasters. I hope you are able to travel to amazing cities, such as Florence and NYC, as those are some of my favorite places. I hope people of lower socio-economic backgrounds are not forced to live in areas that threaten their health and that they have access to important resources, such as healthy and less processed foods.
After taking my environmental chemistry class, I realize how much I take for granted and that if I continue in the way I do, you all might not be able to experience the same things that I have. I urge you to continue to be an environmental activist and transforms your lives to benefit the planet. I have recently changed my current practices after learning about how they can hurt the place that gives me life. I hope you all continue to value the planet and that you will preserve it for future generations to come.
