Future Self,

Know that I tried. Others said it wasn’t real, as they ignored the facts; I heeded the warning, and braced for impact. I protested and boycotted the companies that placed profit above people, but they didn’t care. I wrote Congress, yet they came out of their battles with each other just a little too late. I did what I could, I’m sorry it wasn’t enough.

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
