Dear People of the Future,

Everyday I think about what an important yet terrifying time we live in today. So many changes socially, environmentally and politically are occuring, and the future becomes more uncertain as each day passes.  I get so angry at the people who lived before me, who created or allowed for the creation of these social and economic systems that seem impossible to fix. Some days it seems so impossible that I want to give up completely, but then I snap out of it. I know I have a responsibility to you, the people of the future.  I don’t want to be a part of the people who just sat by, pushing responsibilty on everyone but themselves. I want to be a part of the movement of people fighting for a better present and future that we all deserve.

I hope to become and remain a member of this movement by continuing my education in environmental studies (and hopefully finding a career in the field), lifting up the voices of those who go unheard and doing as much as I can to fight for a healthy, just and peaceful future.

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.
