Dear my future children,
It is hard to write this knowing that the world is a completely different place from what it was when I was growing up. Spending all my time outside playing barefoot on the grass and ocean sand, it was the feeling of being free and invincible in the world. The water of the ocean was so blue and the beaches were as clean as they could be. You could see to the bottom of the ocean and watch your feet melt into the sand. You could smell the scent of the grass and flowers in your backyard and plant a tree and be able to watch it grow.
It saddens me that the world is probably polluted in 2050 and that the air does not have the rich smell it did when I was growing up in the early 2000s. It saddens me that you won’t be able to drive with your windows down and enjoy the cool breeze on summer days. It saddens me that animals that once lived on earth will be extinct by the time you’re reading this. It saddens me that we are the ones to blame because we did not try to help the environment and all of the components that go into keeping this earth healthy and safe.
