Dear My Future Self,

I promise to put in my effort towards making my personal difference and also spreading the word about the importance of climate change. I am doing this for you because I want to see a better future. I hope you see a day where being sustainable is the new norm. If you have kids, I am doing this so they can grow up in a world where there isn’t fear of impending doom. I am doing this so you can enjoy your life to the fullest and be free of worry of when it could end. You want to be able to travel, be successful, and most of all, be happy. I will do everything I can to make a difference. It’s starting now and I hope you read this letter in 2050 and feel proud of the substantial changes that have been made in society.
