Dear Tomorrow,

At this point in time I look around at the constant neglect and carelessness from the country, community, and campus that I live in. Sometimes I feel so strongly about the necessity to combat climate change that I can feel my heart aching. It’s discouraging to see how many people do not know or do not care how their actions affect the world when it’s all I think about. It’s also discouraging feeling such a strong desire to do something but not knowing where to start or who to go to.

I know that I will become more and more involved for the rest of my life. But right now I pledge to continue trying to live a vegetarian lifestyle and eat as little meat and animal products as possible. I also will continue to try to sponsor a tree in someone’s name instead of buying people presents.

And hopefully by making these little steps I can look back when these letters are published and see the change that has been made. Hopefully by then we still have coral reefs, sharks, and the Amazon rain forest left. Hopefully by then environmental justice will be a part of every decision made at home and in the government.

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson
