Dear opadele Kehinde,
I am sorry that we were all too caught up in our own doings to do anything to help our earth. We didn’t know what we had until it was gone. I’m sorry about the polluted oceans, flooding cities and the unbreathable air. I’m done being sorry because an error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it. This future I do not accept it. This generation is where we start to make a difference. We must take care of the earth today because it is our only home. This generation must realize we are not apart from nature but rather a part of nature. To betray nature is to betray us; to save nature is to save us. I plan to start now. Otherwise, there is no way to be certain there will be a future generation to write to. We need to work together and look beyond the issues that divide us, because at the end of the day, if we don’t work together to save our environment, we will all be equally extinct.
