Dear Tomorrow

I’m sorry that I could never finish a water bottle and I’m sorry that I even bought them. I didn’t know that those bottles of water eventually ended up polluting our oceans and killing our sea animals. But, I know that ignorance is not an excuse. Earth was given to us and we choose to treat it irresponsibly and then refused to face our actions. I know at this point that the world around is probably cement and housing developments. It didn’t use to be like that. We used to have trees. We used to have beautiful oceans but, I and the rest of my generation took them for granted and now they are probably gone. I take responsibility for my actions and I know that blatant mistakes has cost you a greener world. I will try to change my ways and so that you can see the same picture that I see when I look out the window or even have a better view.
