I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

Dear Future Me,

I’m not sure where we’ll be in 2050. Hell, I’m not sure we can even beat climate change but we have to try. So I hope the future is bright and filled with trees, and that you published your books. That a difference was made not just by you but by everyone. I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

I had this thought, during a bad episode where I broke down while thinking everything is hopeless. That is humans are an invasive species because aren’t we doing what they do? Destroying ecosystems, killing off species. Sometimes I think it’s true, but I won’t give up. I’ll believe that we can fix this until my last breath. I’ll keep trying to be heard, so no day I’ll get to be you.

A person who went through this crisis and survived it. I hope a lot of people get to become that too. That we can prove the deniers and liars wrong. I though maybe you could use a photo of Mom to get your sports high. I love her.

Love,
Leia
