I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
Dear future me,
I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.
Salutations to whoever may be reading this,
I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.
