As you are packing up in Vermont for your internship in Maryland, I just wanted to remind you of your favorite places here. Moss Glen Falls, Honey Hollow Road, Colchester Pond, North Beach, Oakledge Park, Leddy Beach, and the Waterfront.
You have had so many fun memories in these outdoor places. Recently, you just went to Montreal and went to Mount Royal Park just because you wanted some grassy area. Vermont has definitely made you appreciate nature more. It has also made you aware of the climate crisis that is happening. Currently, I am fearful and do not know what to do. I just talked to Dia and Logan about climate migration and how it might be safer to stay in VT or go to Canada in terms of weather and resources. It is also sad how conversations end up in doom for the state of the world.
Right now with Roe vs Wade being debated and everything else going wrong. But one thing is, at least right now you can do your best. I am doing my best to reduce, reuse, and recycle. I am trying to limit my waste and make sure my vote goes to people that care about helping the state of our world.
As for the future, I hope more people are caring about each other and feel safe. I hope people find ways to eat that fill them with joy. I hope for a lot of things. Anyways, I promise to do my best to leave a safe and stable climate legacy but I can’t do it alone. I will educate myself more on the climate crisis and continue activism. I plan to journal more and try to build the future I want to see today.
I hope you stay well and see you on the flip side.
