To a better future,

Dear Tomorrow,

Today, like yesterday, reflects a world climate filled with distrust and greed. As a result, our planet suffers the consequences and is dying. Our planet’s climate has turned on us and their is no one to blame but ourselves. We will be the death of our amazing epic wholesome home. I can’t stop thinking about climate change and what comes next. Awareness has only gone so far.

There have always been outdated ideals governing the future of our nation. It feels as though the skeptics of this world are hellbound on disproving the science and facts. Skeptics such as President Donald J. Trump, aren’t just filled with distrust but are also compelled by greed. He chooses to disband all ecological protection policies for nothing more than self interest and wealth. We are doing nothing to make tomorrow a survivable, viable future for us and the next generations.

Despite all of the crumbling circumstances that make up our present, I can’t help but be optimistic. Tomorrow will happen and keep happening for years to come. I know this because I am the next generation. We believe stronger and work harder than those before us to protect those who need help and value fairness and tolerance. Its a long road ahead to make our world a greener place but it will happen. Already, our voices are being heard, for we refuse to be silenced. Our call to action has been declared. We are and continue to be the change; so, don’t worry world, I’ll see you tomorrow.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.
