Dear Tomorrow,

I want to let you know that you alone are doing your best but we all need to be better. You have started to cut down on resources, and reuse more and more. We have taken far more than we ever should have allowed from the earth and it is now time to help her recover from the stress and destruction we have bestowed on her. By now, hopefully, you can go outside and find many sources of renewable energy, breath in clean air and drink clean water. Much went into this but it started slowly and we took it one step at a time. For me this meant, cutting down on processed and packaged foods, and most things that were waste heavy. It meant, investing in businesses that wanted to help the cause, not hurt it. It was carpooling more, doing less loads of laundry a week, avoiding wasteful companies, growing my own vegetables and offering my voice to help the cause. One person can a difference and start a movement. Simple changes in life can make a huge difference in the long run.
