It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

Dear Future Self,

The year is 2050—I hope the world looks more beautiful now than is did when I wrote this. I hope that you’re living in sunshine with clean, fresh air by an ocean that is healthy and by a meadow that is full of life. It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change. I promise to start small and do my part to make sure you can eat delicious fresh foods, swim in oceans, and breathe in air. For you, I will commit to eating plant-based foods (for the health of myself and the Earth), buying less and preserving more, and advocating for you—my future, family, hopes, dreams, and life. You are worth it.

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
