Dear Tomorrow,

I’m sorry. I’m sorry that we killed off hundreds of animal species. I’m sorry that you can’t swim in the ocean because we filled it with trash. I’m sorry that we ruined the air that you breathe. I’m sorry that we polluted every inch of this place we call home. I’m sorry that you haven’t seen a tree in years. I’m sorry you can’t see the starry sky. I’m sorry my generation didn’t do enough, when everyone told us that milenials were the ones who could change things. There is no Planet B, but we aren’t doing anything to protect Planet A. It was our home, but now it’s our prison. I remember when I was really little and I learned that eventually the earth would end, I was so scared. But my mom told me that we didn’t have to worry about that for a long long time, and that we wouldn’t even be alive when that happened. I was so relieved. Now, just a few years later, that fear has come back. This time more real, because at this rate, I’m going to live to see the world destroyed. I hope that this letter means nothing to the world of the future, and that we made a change in the way we live. I hope that we saved the earth. If not, I’m sorry.

Dear future generations,

Dear Future Cassie,

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.
