Dear future me and the kids,

You know throughout my life I always loved being outside and enjoying the vast world we live in. I enjoyed all the colors that just flourish around me. As a child I would always go outside and see a vast amount of plants and life around me. Forest preserves and the botanical are particularly some of my favorite places to visit because of the color and natural beauty they have to offer. I’ve always been into plants and especially flowers, loving the vast variety of them and that’s why nowadays I feel sad when I see most of the colors I’m used to are gone. The other thing in particular that I used to loved seeing were fireflies lighting up the summer night sky or the cicadas flying, echoing through the neighborhoods. All of this is slowly changing though and I rarely see these things occurring anymore.

Climate change has had a huge impact on how things are surviving. In particular because of the temperature changes many of the plants and creatures I like seeing have slowly started vanishing. I don’t see as many fireflies in the night sky anymore, a lot less butterflies in the summer flying about, less echoing during the hot summer days by cicadas. Even plants are suffering because of inconsistent weather, dying off because they can’t adapt to the weather. What am I left with? Nothing but bland colors and nothing special to look forward to in the summer.

I hope that later down the line we could fix this whole issue of fluctuating temperatures. I hope we slowly cut back on the factors that cause climate change to occur. If we don’t then what kind of future do I look forward to? No future. In the next couple of years I hope to see more fireflies lighting up the night sky, more flowers enhancing the world to be a vibrant place to live, and just in general, more life in the season I love.

In the future to come I want to help try to promote a better future. I want to slowly start incorporating things in my life like eating on a sustainable level, producing less waste, and creating less emissions. Why? I feel like if I work on this now, as I grow older maybe I could incorporate in my kid’s daily lives, bringing about a happier life for both of us. We can create a future that we would both fall in love with and never wanna turn back. In order to do this though I really need to push myself now and try my best to find ways of to bring about a happier life for me and my future kids. Work hard Tomasz, don’t give up.
