Dear Humans of the Future,

I hope you’re doing ok. The way the world is heading right now might mean that in your time there may be several crisis afoot, from extreme weather patterns to depletions of drinking water. You may be living a very minimal waste life, or a very cramped one. This isn’t the future I wish to see for humanity, but it definitely seems that it is unfolding to look that way.

I’m writing this letter today to pledge my efforts towards a better tomorrow by committing to living more sustainably. I think with this comes the decision to opt for things that leave the least to little carbon footprint. This means riding my bike to work, rarely eating meat or animal products, conserving energy and water at home, planting vegetation in my home. I believe the best way to help you of the future though, is to support policy change that enacts regulations to make our world more green. This will involve not only more political involvement on my end, but also a will to spread the word and encourage others to do the same.

My hopes for the world of tomorrow are for a much broader movement for co-existence to be in place. I hope those in power have an empathy towards all walks of life and not just those in their backyard. I hope that the efforts I pledge to living and supporting a more sustainable lifestyle within our world will help humanity in the future. Lastly I hope you’re in a place better than where we are now.

Thank you,

 

Francisco Arreguin
