Dear Tomorrow,

I personally did all I could to make the world a better place for you. I was far from alone in the effort. We’ve had to contend with obstacles like ignorance and greed (that did its best to foster ignorance). The struggle isn’t over and while I hope we’re on the winning side because good is supposed to triumph over evil, at this point I don’t know what you’ll have to face, if indeed there are any human beings or life of any kind, for that matter, left to face anything worthwhile. So: good luck!
