Dear future loved ones,

Today is October 31st, 2017; Halloween in San Jose, California. A time for celebrations of thrilling seeking horror and the irresistible sweet love of candy. Another holiday enjoyed by the companionship of friends and family in the comforts of our home. As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

Earth has been our home for as long as we can recall for. I would hope that you are growing up in such a beautiful place as our planet has to offer. A place where I had the luxury of celebrating precious moments while co-existing harmoniously with our planet. Unfortunately, my generation and past generations have caused a lot current and potential catastrophic natural events to our home due to our human activities. Much of our resources, nature, and living things are endangered due to burning of fossil fuels and pollution.

I would hope our Earth will be replenished with natural resources, sea levels at peace, and overall climate to naturally adjust. I would hope our wildlife and plant life would be to reproduce so you would enjoy and find all kinds of living, breathing things as simply as an extension of yourself, interconnected with one another. I would hope for the major shift in how we go about our daily lives by utilizing natural, replenished resources. Our technologies would be capable to produce something as ideal as Gigafactories – an eco-friendly factory introduced by the innovative entrepreneur, Elon Musk. These Gigafactories would completely stray away from the dependency of gasoline powered transportation to the dependency of environmentally friendly vehicles. This is a life that I hope for you, and a future we are working towards.

I would hope you’d be able to have the opportunity to enjoy as many Halloweens for future generations as well as we have been. And I would hope for your conscious and continuous efforts to take care of our home, Earth.

We only have today to truly live for. I will do my best to create a tomorrow for you.

Love always,

Hilliary Trang
