Dear future self and family,

It is currently 2021, and we are in the midst of a global pandemic along with climate change. Over this past year in school, I have learned a lot about my impact on the environment, and how the world is responding to unprecedented changes. I hope the issues of our current world have not led you to failure. At this moment in time, climate change keeps getting worse and worse. Both people and animals are dying due to the injustices associated with the environment. As a result, it is impossible to know what tomorrow may bring. Although change seems to be noticeably small, it is accumulating faster than we can physically handle. You deserve to live in an environment that has clean air, a thriving food supply, and a life full of Earth’s natural beauty. With that being said, I promise to replenish more resources than what I take from the environment. I promise to be more sustainable by means of not using plastic, by walking instead of driving to reduce emissions, and by saving water. I also promise to let my voice be heard so that your health and wellness can be prioritized. I hope that all the compromises we are making now allows you to live a life without worry, and that the world is what it is meant to be—peaceful and loving.
