Dear global citizens,

It is my hope that one day we will all see the value of nature and the world we live in, and not turn a blind eye to our destruction of it. I hope that one day we can have clean air for everyone to breathe, clean water for everyone to drink, and enough food so none have to suffer. I hope that we can all help each other and live along side nature in a way that is sustainable for all, and restore the beauty of our world.

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
