Dear tomorrow’s me and to anyone who may read,

Although 2020 has been a wild year, we must never forget that small choices and changes can collectively lead to a profound positive effect on the future. With global climate change posing a huge threat for the future, we must remember to make decisions that benefit the long-term. Buy LEDs instead of fluorescent bulbs. Watch TV in one room. Reduce the amount of electricity we use. Buy local produce and fewer processed foods.

I hope that the government is able to finally make a movement away from oil and fossil fuels and towards renewable energies. If the government is able to enforce better environmental regulations on companies doing huge damage to forests and land, as well as large amounts of carbon dioxide emissions. I hope that someone in power will resist the lobbying of large corporations and actually take steps to save the Earth.

In the future, I promise to be more mindful of the products I buy. To companies, what speaks words better than our money? Buying power of the consumers has the power to change the world. We must demand ethically and locally sourced products that do not exploit the labor and resources of the Earth. I promise to buy fewer processed foods that emit fewer emissions. I promise to be mindful of the amount of time I spend watching TV and driving unnecessarily short distances. I promise to put in the effort to find out where my food is coming from, rather than just automatically buying the cheapest items.

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.
