Dear Future World,
I hope you all, we all have learned. Right now its 2020 and the world is in shambles. We have not prioritized our environment despite the warnings that we are running out of time to do so. Despite there being a global pandemic, the administration in the United States is trying to roll back so many of the policies people have spent years fighting for. I hope we’re doing less fighting now. I hope we have placed an importance on keeping the environment clean, clear, and cool. I hope we have invented new technologies (or thought of ways to use the old ones) to help us live lives that promote a future for everyone, not continuing to live in ways that drastically and negatively impact the world. It was just the 50th anniversary of the very first Earth day a couple of weeks ago. I, at 20, learned so much about the history and importance of this day. I hope that by now everyone understands the magnitude of the sentiments behind Earth day and that we are continuing to carry those ideas at the forefront of the decisions we make. I guess all I can say is I hope we have realized that no other decisions that are made will matter if the Earth is not put first.
All my best,
