Dear next generation,

If you’re reading this, then my generation has ruined the earth, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t done a great deal to mess it up. Right now, we are in the middle of a global pandemic having to deal with all its consequences. But, something that we should also be dealing with is our environment because it’s pretty bad. Climate change has affected the earth as a whole: melting the ice-caps and heating up the atmosphere. With all the vehicles and machinery at work, our air quality is not the greatest. In general, my generation hasn’t been doing its job and protecting the planet that we call home. I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth. Start recycling! Start using electric cars instead of gasoline-powered ones! To the government: START TAKING CLIMATE CHANGE SERIOUSLY! In the end, I hope that your generation has and will continue to treat our planet with the care and respect that it deserves because my generation didn’t do that. Fix our mistakes and make change!

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.
