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.
