Dear future me and family,

I took a sustainability class my first semester of college without really knowing what the class would entail. I’m forever thankful for how eye opening and humbling this class was to me. For me, particularly, this class gave me a chance to become more self-conscious about my own individual impact on the world every day. Day to day I find myself thinking about my water and electricity use, and my trash accumulation more than I ever thought I could.

It’s heartbreaking to see the rate at which we are killing of our home, yet so many people are not aware of this. It’s 2017 and Donald Trump is president. If you haven’t learned about him yet, don’t worry I can fill you in. Mr. Trump doesn’t believe in climate change. All his years as a scientist in his Trump empire led him to believe that climate change is all a hoax and that the Unites States should withdraw from the Paris agreement, which we did. It blows my mind to see the ignorance amongst our society today.

It makes me sad knowing that the beautiful world I know today might not be the same for you guys as it was for me. My hopes for the future and for our world is that people will finally open their eyes and allow themselves to see what our world has become. We are a world that takes too much and gives back so little, stripping the earth day by day of resources it will no longer be able to supply in years to come.

My promise to myself and to you is to live a simplistic and conscious life, and hopefully you are able to see the beauty of the world we live in. I pledge my promise to you that I will try to live a lifestyle that is suitable for our planet and try to get as many people as I can to do the same. I pray that you are able to enjoy the world the way that I have been able to gratefully enjoy it.
