Dear tomorrow,

I write to you today apologizing for the attitudes of the generations that have inhabited the Earth until now and I worry about you and all future generations. Unfortunately, our selfishness and excessive greed have closed our eyes to the well-being of the planet, and it has suffered the consequences. We don’t take care of him as we should, but I have hope and I believe that we will change this situation. We are trying to make people aware to recycle the garbage from their homes, to plant trees and not deforest conservation forests, car companies are creating less polluting vehicles, and so on. So please be better than us. Don’t let greed outweigh your ethical and moral values. Be wise, whatever you sow you or someone else will reap one day.
I’m trying to do my part today, recycling, donating, and reusing pieces of clothing, not being a consumerist person, but I want to be even better, reducing electricity consumption at home and using fewer combustion cars.
