Dear future me,

I hope that the future is better than the present. I hope that we all learn to coexist and love one another. I hope we can learn to look past our differences and just let each other live the best life we can. I hope we allow ourselves to let go of our fears and just do what makes us happy. I hope that there isn’t as much suffering in the world. I hope that you yourself have learned to be happy and let go of everything that has been holding you back. I hope that the people who are in your life right now are the same ones I refuse to let go. I hope that you have finally decided to following your dreams. I hope you’re good. I hope that there are still polar bears, elephants, tigers, sharks and everything in between and that our children or grandchildren don’t have to learn about them the way we learned about mammoths or dinosaurs. I hope that every type of flower still exists because I know how much you love flowers. I hope that you can still look up at the sky when you go back home and see it full of stars, you always loved that. I hope that we learned to love this world the way it loves us.

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

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.
