Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children,

As an adolescent, I wasn’t exposed to the importance of sustaining our ecological system to ensure we have a planet to pass down to you munchkins. However, I do not blame our family as this is something they had no knowledge of just like myself. As I got older, I should’ve adapted to practicing good habits. I’m 21 years old and in college barely being exposed to the various ways I can contribute my part to saving the planet and today, my hope is that you all read this knowing from here forward I’m doing my very best to make sure you are able to live the greatest and healthiest life possible.

I promise to put my best foot forth and make it a habit to recycling at home, something I never did before. I also promise to reduce the amount of trash I produce as this has a very negative effect on our Earth as landfills are one of the largest contributors to pollution in our world. While I can’t promise to leave you any inheritance, I promise to make it my duty to pass this down to all of you in hopes that you are inspired to pass it down to your children, your children’s children, and so on.

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world. Never take no for an answer and strive to be the best version of you in this world. Consider your actions and how they can potentially have negative consequences not only for you but for those around you. Take the time to comprehend the importance of our ecological system and do not let anything hinder your ability to do so. I pray that my small choices have made a difference in your life.
