Dear Tomorrow,

I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was a great place to grow up because of its convenience to an abundance of natural wonders. The opportunity to catch big sport fish on lake Michigan, hike through acres of untouched land, and see an abundance of wildlife everywhere I’d look. I remember walking through the sand dunes and into the miles of protected forests. I have seen these things change within my lifetime, and thinking that the future generations won’t have this opportunity is horrible. Fishing on lakes have dramatically decreases, every time I am home I see a new section of forest completely destroyed and replaced with a mega-subdivision. On a larger scale, I look around this country and see people denying change that is happening before our eyes. The current stance on climate change as well as what we are doing to solve it are both very disappointing. I hope for the future that we are able to change the frame of thinking that has got us to this point. I hope we are able to make this change before it is too far gone. Amazing technology comes out every day, and it is exciting to think about the future tech that could revolutionize the world. Hopefully this technology will move toward a clean, productive, and more sustainable future. I hate to sound like the Lorax here (if you haven’t seen this movie see it immediately) but unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. We are all responsible for this change, I just hope we all can realize it in time. And always remember, Save the bees, whales, oceans, rain forests, ozone, and all the things in between.

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.
